A 3 week, Visual Audio Hub within the 3 galleries at St Margaret’s House – a residency between 3 AV artists to explore experiment and dive into the realms of lights visuals and sounds to develop immersive experience art forms.
The start of a collaboration to give space and time to three AV artists who normally meet and work on events in the music industry. The short timescale of Festivals and music events makes it always difficult for visual artists to test and develop their art forms, the set-up is short and the opportunity for musicians to have pre-production work rarely occurs.

But I can show you that they’re not really that difficult when you know how.
