This workshop is for STEAMhouse members only
Curator John Eng Kiet Bloomfield joins us for a conversation about how he and Wysing Arts Centre work with artists. Wysing Arts Centre is a thriving cultural campus of ten buildings across an 11 acre rural site in south Cambridgeshire which hosts experimental residencies for UK and international artists, and delivers a critically acclaimed public programme of gallery exhibitions, events and digital projects.
John will talk through the different ways he develops relationships with artists, how he curates exhibitions, how Wysing develops its residency programmes and what they look for in applications. This session will be useful for anyone who is interested in learning more about working with curators and arts organisations and applying for residencies. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions.
This event is hosted by Eastside Projects and is for STEAMhouse members only. Find out how to join HERE
