Interested in finding out about international artists’ residencies? Come along to Hawick’s Tower Mill for a CABN event on Estonia by three of the Working The Tweed artists, who have spent time there.
4th April 2013 6.30-8.30pm
Room 205, Tower Mill, Heart of Hawick
In October 2012, Kate Foster, Jules Horne and James Wyness travelled from the Borders to spend two weeks working at the inspiring MoKS Centre for Art & Social Practice in Estonia, supported by the Creative Arts Business Network.
This is a chance to hear firsthand about their experiences in Estonia, how they responded to the impressions and surroundings of MoKS, and more about how the MoKS model works. It’s also an opportunity to discuss how residencies develop artistic practice, and what links we can make now and in the future with international residency programmes. MoKS is set in Mooste – a very rural part of Estonia – and there were many intriguing parallels and differences with respect to the Borders.
This event is free and refreshments will be provided.
