Welcome to Mark Devereux Projects

We collaborate with artists to develop and curate ambitious creative projects

We provide critique and artist professional development support through mentoring, courses and workshops

Mark Devereux Projects (MDP) is an independent curatorial and artist development organisation. We specialise in supporting early to mid-career artists through creative collaboration and tailored mentoring.
