John Jones was excited to hear about this local project which unlocks hidden venues in the Islington to give artists and craft persons a space to display their work.
Islington Exhibits are inviting applications for four artist-in-residence projects, each worth at least £1,000. The residencies are:
• Archway Herbal Clinic
• Islington Council Town Hall
• St. Luke's Centre
• St. Martin of Tours Housing Association
Application deadline: 21 February 2010
Islington Exhibits will run from 24 June until 4 July 2010. As well as offering the residencies, the scheme encourages artists to seek out their own local venues and mount their own exhibition or alternatively apply to exhibit in the Summer Salon at Islington Arts Factory.
In addition they would love to hear from any venues who would like to be approached by artists. Interested venues can post their details onto the website.
Islington Exhibits will be holding a public meeting to enable people to find out more. This will take place on Tuesday 16 March, 6pm till 7:45pm, at North Library, Manor Gardens, London N7.
