How can we break down the separation between the parts of what we do so that one can better influence the other?
To explore collective working between individual and organisational practices. To use the ArtWorks Fellowship to explore the strengths of individual practice and to increase cross-pollination between this and project development work with The Stove Network.
I have been awarded a Fellowship through ArtWorks Alliance and their partner the Barbican Guildhall in London. This is an artist and organisational pairing, one of 5 across Scotland for 2018, with a focus on exploring participatory development of work and socially engaged practices. I am interested in mutual learning and co-working methods of development of work and ideas, how do we support the practice of artist-led work within organisational structures. In essence it is a mutual learning journey as a practical example of continued professional development for both the individual and the organisation, how they interact and support each other in best practice, the co-creation of ideas, building of relationships and shared resources to make better, more engaging work.
