What We Do
Since 2015 Threads have actively aided artist development through regular discourse and criticism outside main institutions. Through:
Creating opportunities for creative development and encouraging the production of new work through regular peer led work-in-progress critiques, residencies and salons.
Boosting exposure, confidence and creativity for artists by producing exhibitions (physical & digital), screenings and festivals.
Providing an accessible “tool kit” for artists through our tailored One to One feedback and development sessions.
