Designed Interdependence: DIY Residencies, led by Neil Ramsay
Led by creative entrepreneur Neil Ramsay, this 90-minute webinar will provide a conceptual and practical overview of DIY, self-designed and directed artist residencies at non-traditional entities and venues. The creative attributes of working artists are often mimicked by many leading organizations and businesses, and this webinar will explore the idea of conceiving and proposing your own, personalized artist residency that stresses the key values that artists specifically bring to the table as creative individuals (as opposed to simply the value of their art work). The resulting residency will promote a laboratory-type inquiry that is mutually beneficial to both you and the collaborating entity.
This online workshop series will be recorded. Recordings will be shared with all previously registered participants after each workshop concludes, regardless of whether participants attend the live workshop or not. The recordings will be posted online indefinitely. They are not available for download.
