Through sourcing and delivering sales opportunities, guidance and business/artist mentoring, PIA works with artists to achieve their commercial aspirations through their art.

Providing knowledge, support and mentoring to artists, creators & art communities

Sourcing, delivering and curating opportunities for sales and enhanced accessibility

Event and Exhibition Curation: PIA curates and delivers a number of exhibitions, pop up galleries, a series of monthly and annual events and one off special project events throughout the year.

Working with selected partners PIA curate and deliver a number of monthly events such as Courtyard Arts at Royal Porcelain Works, Hopmarket Arts at the Hopmarket, regular events such as Pop Up Galleries where and when they can be arranged and annual events such as Worcester Riverside Arts, the PIA Christmas Arts and the Art & Performance Weekend. PIA also produces specific exhibitions and pavilions at Worcester Show, Hop Festival, Worcester Music Festival, LitFest and many others.

As well as programmes such as its Art 4 Business programme, Artist Mentoring, buyer/art enthusiast programme, meet the artist events, launches, talks and workshops.

Our ‘Affordable Opportunity’ based events, galleries and exhibitions are designed to provide maximum awareness of your work and provide opportunities for sales. We present and showcase artists and creators of all disciplines, mediums and styles.

Service Offering and Knowledge Base: PIA vet and source suitable suppliers and partners, guide and assist with display and presentation skills, merchandising solutions, product pricing, legal compliance, preparing and procuring stock and much more.

Mentoring and Assistance: We provide support and assistance to artists though a one-to-one mentoring programme to help artists to achieve their goals and objectives.

The Artist Mentoring Programme is incredibility successful in assisting and guiding clients to reach their objectives and aspirations. Be it to sell their work to a wider audience, help with their own marketing and promotion, improving their online presence, dealing with the administration aspects (the non arty boring bits), prepare for an event, setting and planning a full business strategy, or all of the above and beyond.

We establish what you want to achieve, set a plan of action on how we can get you there and then help and assist you the whole way through. Working at a pace that suits you and pushing you when needed.
