I am delighted to be one of the 11 recipients of the Stephen Palmer Travel Bursary Fund 2023, a fund which provides support to freelancers working in the visual arts in Scotland to connect with peers across the UK.
The award will fund me to travel down to Glasgow at the end of the month for a concentrated burst of sound art events at SONICA SURGE. I’m hoping this immersion in innovative audiovisual art and experimentation will help me find strategies for melding my own sound art and visual art practices together with more coherence in the future…
The other 10 recipients of the award are: Katherine Fay Allan, Harvey Dimond, Maya Rose Edwards, Kathryn Hanna, Rebecca Livesey-Wright, Lauren McLaughlin, Siobhan McLaughlin, Rachel McBrinn & Alison Scott, Katherine Murphy and Ruth Mutch.
You can find out more about all of our projects and about the work of the Stephen Palmer Travel Bursary Fund via the website of Engage, the leading charity for promoting engagement and participation in the visual arts.
You can also visit the websites of the sonica festival itself, and of its producers, Cryptic, to find out more about the events I’ll be travelling to:
