Firstsite Associate Artist retreat


(l-r) James Stradner, Nicky Deeley, Lisa Wilkens, Nastassja Simensky, Cinzia Cremona, Priscila Buschinelli, Associate Artist retreat April 2016

I was privileged to be invited to embark on the Firstsite Associate Artist retweet in April 2016, accompanying the group of artists whom I had selected for the scheme and two Firstsite employees who have taken over management of the scheme since I left Essex.

We hired an amazing lighthouse in Hunstanton, North Norfolk for a 4-day get together. Each artist had specific research interests which they explored on the trip, and there was a great deal of discussion which enriched our experiences.
