Artist~in~Continuum (2015~19) was a rolling residency programme I co~founded with poet Wayne Holloway~Smith, and directed until 2017. Based at Husk, a café and arts centre in Limehouse, the project grew organically from the space and was designed to build community between local artists, providing time, space and support to develop their creative practice.
Continuum ~ Residencies
Hosting up to five artists at a time, a programme of staggered 6~month residencies grafted each new participant into an existing and evolving creative community. Each ‘artist~in~continuum’ received free studio space and was supported to develop their work through regular crits ~ a safe space to share and receive feedback ~ culminating in a solo~show in the Husk Gallery.
Continuum ~ Exhibitions
Continuum ~ Public Programmes
During their residency, artists were supported to co~produce projects engaging the wider community, including workshops, performances and collaborative artworks.
Alongside Artist~in~Continuum, I curated the exhibition programme for The Walls, Husk’s community gallery, and co~ordinated Husk Creative Nights, a series of free events and workshops led by local artists for local people.
