How do we understand a place? What are the social, cultural, political, historical, traditional, conceptual and personal dimensions that define place? How do these questions help artists to understand and explore the context in which they locate their research and work? The Placemaking Residency allows participants to consider these questions and more in a community studio environment, supported by an exciting mix of visiting artists and scholars. Make a place for your practice, for your voice.
