The FuseWIRE Project
We are delighted to announce the Pilot of a new project at FusionARTS.
The project is designed to encourage and enable the early career stage of an individual creative.
It fits in with the charitable aims and objectives of FusionARTS and is something we
have been wanting to do for many years but haven't had funding. We have pared down the initial one year concept to this much more modest six month trial option, and hope to qualify for some funding in the future when we have worked on the pilot.
FusionARTS is an established group of experienced artists and makers and therefore an ideal environment for someone at the start of their career to gain experience. Any positive input for the on-going development of this project is very welcome.
Studio 32 ( the smallest studio and most usually a store room) will be the location for FuseWIRE.
The aims are to:
* Provide valuable studio space for a six month period.
* Catalogue creative development - including a blog on www.fusionarts.org
* Offer mentoring from other studio members if appropriate.
* Offer a window display and exhibition in the FusionARTS Foyer at the end of the six month period.
* Develop a CV.
HOMELESSNESS IN KINGSTON
FusionARTS in association with Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness and Kingston Independent Network of Creatives are pleased to have presented a projected exhibition of photographs taken by people who have been affected by homelessness.
Twenty cameras were given to people who were, or had experienced homelessness in Kingston, so they may record their everyday lives and experiences without any constraints.
The idea behind the project was to give the participants a ‘voice’ that they would never normally have. Our exhibition provided a glimpse of real lives that are often ignored.
The exhibition has now finished.
