Threads Micro Residency Project

 

 

Having delivered over forty visual art critiques across Kent, Threads have identified the opportunity for development that exists in peer-to-peer activity. In answer to this, Threads have curated a nine-month, paid programme of public residences, critiques and salons, supported by local cultural ambassadors. By keeping every event open to the public, the project offers a uniquely different cultural experience for visitors, highlighting East Kent as a must- visit destination for contemporary art. 

Thirty- six chosen artists participating in residences will create work at a partner location, including: Sidney Cooper (Canterbury); UCA Brewery Tap (Folkestone); Ideas Test (Sittingbourne); Dover Studio Collective; and Dover Big Local/ Art31 Gallery. A further twelve artists will participate in Salons at the UCA Brewery Tap (Folkestone) and the Turner Contemporary (Margate)

Each residency day is public facing with an open door policy all day, making more creative spaces open and accessible. An open critique closes the day, our critiques are peer-led discussions surrounding work-in-progress. They are free to attend and there is no pressure to present work. Artists that do wish to present their work will be given the chance to discuss vital ideas and pivotal moments that could shape future work. Find all our critiques here

Salon events will be held throughout the project. Differing from the Residencies and Critiques, Salons offer selected Artists the chance to install and present work to an audience followed by a q+a led by a panel of experienced creatives. The discussion is followed by informal networking and drinks. Find all our Salons here
