Shift Canada 2019/21
Applied Arts Scotland
One of four makers from Scotland chosen to participate in "Shift Canada"; a week's residency at NSCAD in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 2019.
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."
Sadly, Covid-19 put paid to a further residency in the Highlands in spring 2020, but weaver Jennifer Green and Sarah Paramor created their own lockdown residency... Together they have made "Shoes for Mary", which will be exhibited in Meet Make Collaborate at Inverness Museum from 27 April to 19 June 2021.
