Guest Artist Support Sessions: Hester Chillingworth
We all need a little support right now, and Artsadmin’s Artist Support team is here for you. In addition to re-opening our one-to-one Creative Support Service in March, we’ve invited six fantastic artists who are each offering six one-hour sessions in March and April. These sessions are a place to speak about the big ideas of your art and dig into the creative corners you might feel stuck in.
Hester Chillingworth creates work which is playful and interventionist; work that elevates the everyday, while remaining accessible.
Introduction from Hester:
I make performance work, installations and texts.
My work is playful, low-key and interventionist.
I like using mundane and functional materials that anyone can lay their hands on, and the work often has a ‘too simplistic’ aesthetic.
It is work that would like to think it elevates the everyday, while remaining accessible.
The things I make frequently play with language, duration, mischief and confusion.
I am 2020 Jerwood New Playwright at The Royal Court Theatre, Industry Drama Fellow at the University of Hull, a Fellow of the Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre and Associate Artist at Cambridge Junction.
I am non-binary. My pronouns are they/them.
I will not work on projects that have an all-white, all-cis team.
I am particularly interested in talking with people whose work plays with form and moves between disciplines, people who might engage with the idea of Queering as a mode of practice, and artists who identify as mid-career or ‘older’.
About this session
This is a one-hour session with Hester, focusing on questions and support for your career in the arts.
These sessions are now filled but you can still book a Creative Support Session with one of the Artsadmin team.

These sessions are delivered online via Zoom. We can embed captions via Otter.ai captions and offer BSL interpretation upon request.
