Hannah Kershaw, Circuit Programme Assistant
We’re pleased to announce that we have recruited artist Rebecca Birch to collaborate with our Circuit group over the next few months, specifically on developing the themes of events to be held in Cambourne (read more).
Here is what Rebecca has to say about the project and working with Circuit:
“I’m really excited about working with Circuit Cambridgshire in Cambourne. Much of my art practice responds to particular communities and locations, such as this project in Cambourne, but working as an individual artist is completely different to working in collaboration with 17 other artists, and I’m very excited to see where our combined energies and enthusiasms lead us. So far we’ve shared our ideas and visited Cambourne to map out potential locations for interventions and events. Ideas are flying around and the challenge is going to be choosing which to pursue. Over the next few weeks we’ll be finalising a proposal, discussing it with the Wysing and Kettle’s Yard curatorial staff, and making contact with the local community in Cambourne, and by May, something amazing and unexpected will happen in Cambourne… ”
Rebecca’s extensive experience of working in gallery education settings, community and schools based projects is incredibly valuable for this project and we are excited to see what the outcome will be. Rebecca has led a number of projects with young people, including at The Livesey Museum for Children, The Royal Opera House and The Hepworth Wakefield.
