Members’ Exclusive Opportunities
Our public programme provides exclusive member opportunities including commissions, a chance to run a workshop, be part of a talk or discussion panel, or inclusion in our exhibitions and projects. All of our opportunities and calls for submissions are featured in the members’ email so look out for them!

1:1 Mentoring & Professional Development
We offer one-to-one sessions to our members who want to talk about any aspect of their practice from practical needs, application forms, to funding bids or financial and business advice. We also periodically run portfolio sessions with lead artists and host talks from artists and industry specialists. If you would like a one-to-one meeting email: liz@esamail.org.uk

AV Loans
We have a collection of equipment that we can hire out to our members for free. Based at Patrick Studios (Leeds) this includes cameras, tripods, digital or overhead projectors, slide scanners/projectors, DVD players and TVs. All hire is on a short-term loan basis. If you need equipment for longer we may be able to help. For enquiries and bookings email: liz@esamail.org.uk

Resources
Within Patrick Studios, our purpose-built studio complex in Leeds, we have an array of resources for our members. This includes a communal members area with iMac computers that feature Office Suite and CS5/CS6 design software, and free printing and photocopying facilities. We also have a bookable Meeting Room and a range of monthly art subscriptions. Barkston House in Holbeck houses our specialist ceramic facilities and studios with a classroom for workshops and classes.

Opening Nights / Events
All of our public exhibitions and events are open to the public including non-members and are usually free. If it is a limited capacity event then members will have priority and if there is a cost involved we will endeavour to offer a members’ discount.
