Summer Residency 2017

22 – 29 July 2017

This was a residency open to artists from all disciplines. The week brought together composers, performance makers, a painter, photographer, documentary filmmaker, illustrator, opera singer, animator, and a poet.

The theme of the week was collaboration and exchanging creative practice. Instead of coming with a pre-existing idea participants planned to work on, they came with an open mind and were inspired by each other’s diverse ways of working.  Artists offered a window into their creative practice through skill-share sessions, ranging from writing poetry to animating inanimate objects. Some sessions were inspired by the local environment; we were led on an excursion through Culbin forest by a photographer, and a painter invited us to use the natural world as our canvas.  The entire group were brought together when they created a mockumentary film set at Invererne house. At the end of the week artists shared work they had created together with others and individually.
