PROJECTS

EACH OF THE PROJECTS LISTED BELOW ARE OPPORTUNITIES THAT I HAVE UNDERTAKEN TO DEVELOP MY SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE IN COORDINATING ARTS EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS, AND TO CHAMPION AND ENCOURAGE TALENTED ARTISTS WITH A DESIRE TO SUCCEED.

 

EACH PROJECT HAS BEEN A NOT-FOR-PROFIT VENTURE, SHOWING MY DEDICATION TO COORDINATING AND HOSTING EVENTS WHICH PROMOTE STAND - OUT EMERGENT TALENT IN THE NORTH WEST. I BELIEVE MY COMMITMENT TO CELEBRATING AND NURTURING ARTISTS WOULD BE A GREAT CONTRIBUTION TO THE DOT-ART TEAM.

THE OLD BANK RESIDENCY:

IN JULY 2019 I WORKED ON A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT WITH NOMA MANCHESTER - THE LARGEST URBAN DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN NORTH WEST ENGLAND. IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE OLD BANK RESIDENCY (MANCHESTER) MYSELF AND MANCHESTER BASED DESIGNER MEGAN COWLEY SELECTED TEN MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTISTS TO JOIN THE PROJECT. COWLEY AND I WENT ON TO HOST A MONTH-LONG RESIDENCY PROGRAMME WITH TEN ARTISTS FROM BOTH LIVERPOOL AND MANCHESTER, MAKING WORK FROM INFORMATION EXTRACTED FROM BOTH ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES AND SOCIAL HISTORY OF THE OLD BANK, TRANSFERRING THIS INFORMATION INTO BINARY DATA. THE RESIDENCY ENDED WITH A PUBLIC EXHIBITION SHOWCASING THE WORK CREATED THROUGHOUT THE RESIDENCY.

 

#DANST - DIGITAL ARTISTS NEED SPACES TOO:

IN 2018 I FOUNDED THE #DANST CAMPAIGN WHILST NAVIGATING THROUGH MY GRADUATE RESIDENCY WITH THE ROYAL STANDARD. #DANST WAS AN INITIATIVE WORKING TO SUPPORT AND CHAMPION DIGITAL ARTISTS BASED IN MERSEYSIDE THROUGH A PROGRAMME OF EVENTS AND WORKSHOPS IN MY ARTIST STUDIO. #DANST EXPLORED THE REALMS OF DIGITAL MEDIA WITHIN VISUAL ART, CONSIDERING HOW TECHNOLOGY HAS BECOME AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE CONTENT, MAKING AND SHOWING OF CONTEMPORARY ARTWORK. TO CELEBRATE THE END OF MY SIX MONTH RESIDENCY I BROUGHT TOGETHER FIVE FEMALE CREATIVES FROM OR BASED IN MERSEYSIDE FOR A ONE NIGHT POP UP EXHIBITION CHAMPIONING SOME OF THE CITIE’S MOST TALENTED DIGITAL ARTISTS.

 

ADITLO - A DAY IN THE LIFE OF:

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF IS A COLLECTION OF VIEWS, STORIES, ART WORKS AND EXPERIENCES FROM SOME OF MERSEYSIDE’S MOST EXCITING ARTISTIC TALENT. THE PUBLICATION LOOKS AT THE SUSTAINABILITY OF AN UNDERGRADUATE ART PRACTICE, WHILST DISCUSSING THE SUPPORT FROM INSTITUTIONS WHO ARE BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN LEAVING EDUCATION AND FACILITATING CAREER PATHWAYS FOR EMERGING ARTISTS.

 

YAW - YOUR ARTS WORTH:

IN 2018 MYSELF AND A GROUP OF PEERS WERE AWARDED AN EXHIBITING SPACE WITH THE INDEPENDENT’S BIENNIAL IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ART IN LIVERPOOL. WE WERE GRANTED A PUBLIC SPACE TO CURATE A GROUP EXHIBITION BUT WITH AN URGE TO ENCOURAGE AND SUPPORT OTHERS IN THEIR PATH TO SUCCESS, WE MADE AN AMBITIOUS BID TO REDESIGN THE EXHIBITION SPACE INTO INNOVATIVE OPEN STUDIO SPACES, EXTENDING THE OPPORTUNITY TO MORE EMERGENT ARTISTS. WE DEVELOPED A THREE-MONTH RESIDENCY PROGRAMME AND EACH RAN WORKSHOPS WHICH ENABLED EVERYONE TO BUILD UPON  THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS WORKING WITH A RANGE OF DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES AND CONSTRUCTING A MORE BENEFICIAL AND PRODUCTIVE EXPERIENCE. WE WORKED TOGETHER AND SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENTED THE PLAN, GOING ON TO FORM AN ARTIST-RUN COLLECTIVE: YAW – YOUR ARTS WORTH.
