Online Artist Retreat with Emma Smith

We are thrilled to announce an online res­i­den­cy with inter­na­tion­al­ly renowned artist, Emma Smith.

The residency will include an in-depth exploration of Emma’s practice including wide ranging themes, ideas and ways of working. Talks and workshops will explore the practice of Ars Combinatoria and the bringing together of diverse fields of knowledge, research as practice, working in collaboration, tools, resources and practicality of social practice and collective problem solving. Participants will have the opportunity to develop existing or new ideas for projects and will benefit from sharing sessions to utilise the expanded knowledge of the group.

Don’t miss what will be a truly fascinating few days and an inspirational start to the new year!

What to expect//
An expanded residency including online talks, group workshops and exchange and offline independent making-time to suit you. The residency will include two online sessions per week on Monday and Tuesday mornings for three weeks with whatever independent making time you would like between weekly sessions.

What will I leave with//
Ideas for making work drawing on multiple themes, knowledge of models for working collaboratively and through research, and reflection and new routes forward on current and future work. Thinking space and reflection on the terms by which you make work; both how you invite others into your practice and how your practice is invited to be commissioned.
