Fabienne Nicholas, Head of Consultancy at Contemporary Art Society introduces the talk by outlining the art programme and the context of the North West Cambridge Development. Managed and curated by the Contemporary Art Society and InSite Arts, the Habitation Artist Residency Programme forms the backbone of the public art strategy for the North West Cambridge Development. The artists are the first inhabitants of the site and participate in research collaborations with University of Cambridge departments to produce a range of creative responses that engender a sense of place for the new community.
The programme encourages collaboration between artists and departments within the University. In this, the third year of residencies, Lise Autogena and Joshua Portway are working work with The Sainsbury Laboratory and Ruth Ewan with the North West Cambridge Development Project Team. In this event for the Festival of Ideas 2015 the artists talk about their work and Residency Research.
This event was free and open to all.
The event took place at The Sainsbury Laboratory, Lecture Theatre, Cambridge University, Bateman Street CB2 1LR
