ZeitgeistArtsProjects (2012-2015) was co-founded by Annabel Tilley and Rosalind Davis to support ambitious artists with practical ways to sustain their practice. At the heart of the ZAP philosophy were the questions: How do we survive as an artist? How do we develop and sustain a critically engaged practice over the long term?

Their annual programme: Show & Tell addressed these questions through talks, seminars, art tours and exhibitions that encourage artists to develop networks and learn from other artists. Guest artists have included: Mark Titchner, Ceri Hand, Gordon Cheung, Susan Collis, Phoebe Unwin, Virginia Verran, Graham Crowley and Transition Gallery.
