AltMFA is an alternative ‘Master of Fine Art’ course established by artists for artists as a free alternative to studying a university-based MA in London. The course has no fixed premises; our programme takes place in a range of private and public venues.

Alt MFA incorporates the most desirable elements of an MFA course; space to work, collaborators to argue with, a social sphere to move within. Unlike a conventional MFA, Alt MFA is a common space in which there are no fees; time and facilities are all offered in kind.

Alt MFA is self-selecting; the only criteria for membership is attendance and the contribution of time and energy. Alt MFA is non-hierarchical and self-directed; participants set the curriculum.
Meetings are every Monday night between 6.30pm and 9.30pm.
