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.
