We are thrilled to announce an online residency with internationally renowned artist, Emma Smith!

The residency will include an in-depth exploration of Emma’s practice including wide ranging themes, ideas and ways of working. Talks and workshops will explore the practice of Ars Combinatoria and the bringing together of diverse fields of knowledge, research as practice, working in collaboration, tools, resources and practicals of social practice and collective problem solving. Participants will have the opportunity to develop existing or new ideas for projects and will benefit from sharing sessions to utilise the expanded knowledge of the group.
