language English
duration 1 week

This hybrid programme consists of one to one mentorship, project work and a series of lectures, screenings and workshops. The mentors are a group of international artist filmmakers including guest professor in film and artistic research Lucy Beech and Turner Prize (UK) Nominee and artist filmmaker James Richards.

Target group

‘Working with Waste’ is conceived as a mentor-led research group which explores relationships between waste, creativity and transformation and is open to professional artists/filmmakers and students at MA/PhD level who are interested in developing their artistic strategies and building new research-based methodologies.

Course aim

Participants will be encouraged to apply with a research proposal / idea for an artistic project that activates waste materials or explores the meanings and potentials of waste in various sociocultural settings. Each individual will develop their research proposals into an audio visual project over the summer and gain feedback from mentors and working group participants on how their research innovations might develop within public contexts such as exhibitions, screenings, performances, seminars or publications.
