VA Collectives | Narratives
Visitors will also be able to watch videos from Narratives, our six month collaborative residency, which ran in partnership with Manchester Jewish Museum, Castlefield Gallery, The Lowry, Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre and Project Artworks. The residency brought together 12 artists, some from Venture Arts and some via an open call, to develop shared ideas and create new artwork, exploring personal histories and cultural heritage.
At this one off event Narratives artist Leslie Thompson will be creating a large-scale drawing live in the gallery space, while Jackie Haynes will be presenting a specially devised performance piece.
VA Collectives are a series of events, performances, gatherings and happenings that aim to bring artists together to explore themes of relevance to their work, the arts and the world around us.
Both the videos and the resulting drawing by Leslie Thompson will remain in the gallery over the closing weekend for visitors to enjoy.
