Over the years, ITI has developed a close relationship with the artists who have taken part in our numerous mentoring initiatives. Our team has identified the necessity for on-going support of artists following successful completion of participation in programmes such as Six in the Attic (SITA). The ALUMNI programme assists the individual artists and companies in their on-going professional development through enhancing their existing support systems.
