At a public meeting at North Cambridge Academy on the 24th February, members of the public and students at the school voted to select Harold Offeh as the next Open House Artist in Residence for North Cambridge. Harold will be working with communities in North Cambridge to explore the local area from now until the end of September 2017.
“I’m really looking forward to meeting and working closely with North Cambridge’s diverse and dynamic communities. I hope over the course of the residency, utilising Kettle’s Yard as a resource, we can collectively explore and make visible the rich histories and narratives of the people and places of this exciting community.”
Over the next few months Harold will be exploring the history and contemporary culture across the north of the city. In particular, the Arbury Carnival, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. He will also be researching Kettle’s Yard to develop engaging and inspiring projects in collaboration with the community.
“For the past two years the local community has greatly benefited from the Open House project. This third year starts with the selection of Harold Offeh as our third artist in residence. His previous installations in various communities have been awesome and we all look forward to working together with Harold on this year’s project.”
Alan Soer, Manager of Arbury Community Centre and Chair of Arbury Carnival
Open House is a long-term creative programme with Kettle’s Yard and communities in North Cambridge. Every year the community selects the Open House Artist in Residence. Harold is our third Open House Artist in Residence after Isabella Martin and Emma Smith.
