'No Artist is an Island'
A one week project space in which artists and producers develop, test and share new ideas.

'No Artist is an Island' aims to explore relationships between artists, artistic production and audiences with an open-ended approach.

It is an opportunity for artists and producers to develop their creative practice and gain critical feedback from their peers in a very practical sense. The project space is intended to function somewhere between studio and gallery, to develop artwork that involves an element of audience participation, live performance or the site specific. The purpose of the project space is not to produce a static exhibition of work but to instead allow participants to develop work in which audiences may be invited to participate.

The shape of what takes place is determined by the participants...
