Make Space: Participant Reflections
Make Space was a three-year programme run by Nic Green and Artsadmin from 2013-2015, developed to offer young artists the opportunity to explore site-responsive performance practices.
Over the three years, the project was based at Hackney City Farm, Richmond Yacht Club (Eel Pie Island) and Totteridge Cricket Ground consecutively, with each group spending a month exploring the collaborative potential between themselves, each other and their chosen site.
This weekly series of blog posts will feature reflections, artistic responses and critical writing inspired by the project, exploring the potentials of ‘place’ and rejecting the pressures of ‘productivity.’ The posts were written by the participants and artists, all of whom all attended the Making More Space symposium in 2016:
- Away with the Birds | At Sing Two Birds | Mnemonic topographies | Women of the Hill by Hanna Tuulikki
- Performance As Currency For The Wild by Rebecca Leach
- A Naturally Occurring Psychology by David Key
- Making Conversation by Ayisha De Lanerolle
- Feeling Our Way Into The Practice (Of Doing) by Simone Kenyon
