Create to Move: Practising Play

Tuesday 12 December - Friday 22 December
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

The first iteration of an exploratory collaboration between two visual artists  & one dancer-choreographer. This will be an improvised residency where the artists will respond together through tasks, movement and environment.

What challenges and inspirations can arise when you physically can’t be in the same location?

One artist will be located in India working at a dance residency, the other two will be at St Margaret’s House whilst also juggling other jobs & commitments. How might they respond when they are together and apart?

There won’t be a final exhibition output from this residency, but visitors are welcome to pop in and say hi.

Participating artists:
Emma Macleod (visual artist)
Fiona Hermse (visual artist)
Emma Snellgrove (dancer-choreographer)

Residency | An artist at work

Tuesday 12 December - Friday 22 December
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Residency with bursary studio artist Anjila Wilson

“We often see an artists work installed but not always the journey before hand, the journey which can either be the bounty or the burden of the artists practice, just as life, art is a never ending discovery”

Gallery 2 will be used as a working space for the artist to
explore various ideas for an up and coming exhibition in July

The gallery will be open to the public to allow a rare
occurrence; a glimpse into the day to to day life in the artists
world of making, researching and ideas.

Wednesday 14th December
Saturday 16th December

It’s a friendly, relaxing course with different practices and activities to suit different tastes and needs. It is both educational and experiential. We learn to look inward, with kindness and in safety, at our physical sensations, our thoughts and our feelings, whatever they are. The intention is to allow and accept how things are without great effort and this can lead to profound change. There are 7 sessions in 2017 and a final session on 9 January with an optional day retreat included in the cost. Also included are recordings and a course manual.
