In April Janet Pavone unfortunately had to pull out of working with the project, so I decided to turn this into an opportunity! I created a call out for the project to recruit an artist to run 3 of the workshop day with the group Women In Prison.
This was a great thing to do, not only did it give our project some fantastic exposure (always silver linings) it also provided me with an opportunity to get in contact with a wonderfully wide ranging selection of Artists. After a wonderful response to the call out in the short time that it was open I considered the applications and selected Rebecca Harris to be our third artist. With a wealth of both workshop and professional practice experience and a keen focus on using materials to create dialogue Rebecca is a perfect fit. I’m very excited to see what happens on the workshops!
For more about Rebecca please see her website here: http://www.rebecca-harris.com/
An added bonus during this process was also securing Amy Dignam of Desperate Artwives to come on board with Cate Field and myself for two of the workshops with The You Trust. Amy is a visual Artist with a passion for working with women and mother artists to create opportunities for practice, exhibition and performance.
The Desperate Artwives website is currently being updated but I will post it here soon!
