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.

Teatri Kodu in EstoniaThis 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.MoKS in Estonia
