Shift Canada 2019/20
Applied Arts Scotland
I am utterly delighted to have been chosen as one of four makers from Scotland to participate in "Shift Canada". Next stop, Nova Scotia!
In the words of AAS:
"Shift Canada 2019/20, an exchange programme bringing together Scottish and Canadian makers to create new works which respond to Identity, Sustainability and/or Collaboration.
For 2019/20 we will bring Scottish and Canadian makers together three times; at a residency in Nova Scotia in the autumn of 2019; and the Scottish Highlands in Spring 2020; and for an exhibition and symposium in July 2020. This final meeting will bring together both Shift and other strands of AAS’s international work in Mexico and Thailand to celebrate the new connections and work made through this and the other projects."
