Triangle – Astérides provides on-going support to the studios’ resident artists, to help them develop their critical, technical and professional skills. The programme also brings the artists more visibility, and helps them prepare for the next stages in their career by improving their understanding of professional networks, mechanisms and issues, both nationally and internationally. By giving the artists the momentum they need, the programme aims to act as a springboard for their careers.
