What’s Next?

Side by Side is an on-going investigation. We have invited the artists Helen Carnac and Laila Diallo to extend their research into making a new work, to be shown in 2014.  Considering what may exist between performance and exhibition, and a meeting point for their individual mediums, both artists will develop ideas and material that have emerged from the residency and present work in different spaces around the UK.

We are also seeking further opportunities to discuss and debate this project through a public programme of talks and workshops.

Sharing Moving Making
A workshop open to all artists

Helen Carnac and Laila Diallo will lead a week-long intensive workshop this summer and will use the experience of their residency as a starting point to investigate process and practice.
In an open and welcoming environment, this workshop will support all dance, craft and visual artists on their journey as makers. The group will discuss the value of developing work alongside others as well as exchange information about their practice. The workshop is suitable for any artists interested in exploring materiality and making, especially those who have a willingness to share and imagine change.
This workshop is delivered with Independent Dance, as part of their Delving Deeper Intensives.
