Practice and Research in Action

26-30 June

This week, eight PhD researchers will join the Artists’ Camps 2017 residency at The Rodd. Coming together from different Universities across the North West they have formed a cross-disciplinary group ‘Practice and Research in Action’ expressly for the residency. They will explore different practice-based research methodologies and share a range of skills from felt-making to video work as they respond to the site in unexpected ways. See their profiles and blog at

Join the Artists: Thursday June 29 June 6.00 -8.00 pm   Come and have a look at new artworks made during the course of the week - including film, video, drawing and artists books – and hear about how the eight artists have responded to working in a new environment.  Use the main entrance and park as directed. Please email us if you plan to attend.
