I am very excited to be part of the ‘Moving In’ project, supported by Equal Arts: All kinds of artists living, working & making creative moments at Northbourne Residential Care Home in Gateshead during August-September 2017.
Artists Claire Ford and Kate Sweeney have now moved from their studios into the care home & will stay there for a month. During that time, other artists will visit & stay with them. I’ll be joining for a few days from 21 August.
They say: “The project seeks to challenge the conventional ‘workshop’ structure that artists are restricted to in care home and institutional settings. It aims to develop more immersive practices and create spaces to experiment with the types of activity, processes and outcomes that could be possible.”
