N18: Great Exhibition of the North

Client: N18 for Great Exhibition of the North

Newcastle & Manchester, October - September 2018

This was a two-month intense mentoring role working with a group of emerging artists, with a focus on encouraging them to incorporate digital skills and new technologies into their practice. I worked closely with programme members Manoli Moriaty, Ruth Mary Johnson and Sophie Ashcroft, guiding them through the development of a series of micro-commissions.

- The N18 initiative was funded through Arts Council England's Ambition for Excellence scheme and supported by the digital expertise of the BBC. In response to the Great Exhibition of the North, 19 aspiring and emerging artists from across the North joined a ten-week programme to learn new skills, collaborate and creatively respond using digital technology.
