Invisible Flock will lead our artist-led professional development programme in 2015/16
In February, we announced the call out for our artist-led professional development programme and invited artists from all over the north of England to pitch ideas which would provide support and opportunities for regional artists, whilst drawing heavily on the concerns of their own practice.
We had a host of brilliant, insightful applications from artists, collaborations and companies from all over the north of England, proving to us that there is a demand, need and interest in a long-term, artist-led professional development strand within our programme.
We're thrilled to announce that the first artists to lead this brand new strand of our programme will be Leeds-based Invisible Flock. Their series of events and initiatives will investigate themes of participation in live art, beginning in April and running until March 2016.
We expect to run an event with Invisible Flock every couple of months throughout the year, including a residential retreat. There will also be some formal mentoring opportunities led by the company and a digital presence for the programme.
