HANDSHAKE has two stages: the first project (HS1, 2 and 4) concentrates on a two-year mentor/mentee relationship with a series of national exhibitions, and professional practice opportunities. The second (HS 3 and 5) is where the mentor becomes a colleague and in most cases a collaborator. The national and international exhibition focus and professional practice programme is a step up from their first HS project. This allows the Handshaker to turn into an independent professional artist with innovative art practice.
