This summer we are excited to be working in partnership the Jersey Arts Trust and Jersey Heritage as part of the ‘Inter-Island Artist Lock-in’. At the end of this month one our Associate Directors, Sue Hill, is heading to Elizabeth Castle with artists from 24 island nations who will be ‘locked in’ the castle on a rocky outcrop off Jersey’s south coast in a celebration of global culture and collaboration, to coincide with one of the world’s lesser-known international sporting events.
The NatWest Island Games brings competitors from all over the world to take part in a week-long festival of top level sport. The 16th biennial Games is being held in Jersey from 27th June to 3rd July and promises to be the biggest in the event’s history.
Sue will be facilitating the lock-in for the artists from islands competing at the Games, who are invited to develop their ideas and stretch their practice through a spirit of collaboration. She will guide the artists through a unique process of ‘play’ and exploration to help them to work towards a shared piece, which will be showcased to the public in the final two days of the residency.
