mock-up of exterior spaceFollowing our last post we have been making plans for our research trip to the South West in January 2011. We will be focusing our visits to Spike Island in Bristol and G39 + Mermaid & Monster in Cardiff, amongst other artist run spaces in both cities.
'We want to maximize our time during our visit by getting an all rounded perspective on the hub of an artist run space – not just passively observing from a distance. This Bursary means that we can go and see for ourselves what the key aspects are to running a project space through face-to-face meetings and by asking questions, becoming involved and gaining expertise through other successful models. The NAN Go and See Bursary will be an invaluable contribution to the early life of Aid & Abet and it’s sustainability into the future'. - Notes from our application
We shall be posting news and images of our trip nearer the time, in the meantime click this link to find out more about NAN
