Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


A workshop, exhibition and screening as part of the Manchester International Festival, July 2017.

A collaborative event with members of the Islington Mill Art Academy.With 7 other artists, I created and organised a project as part of the Manchester International Festival. The overall themes of the event were about exploring arts education. Approaches to practice, collaboration, an event to share and make new work and to publicise the Academy. The exhibition was held at thegallery space in Islington Mill in Salford. The project was funded by the Manchester International Festival, after an application and co-ordination by members of the group. We collectively organised and promoted the event.I designed a range of posters to showcase the work in advance of the exhibition.This is part of my ongoing work with the Art Academy. I am interested in questions and ideas around collaborative practice and art education. The themes of my work were based on ideas I am currently exploring in my PhD work, and the format was derived from an idea I use in my teaching work - the creation of a collaborative by a number of individuals.
