Our upcoming network event is scheduled for Saturday 5th September | 2-2.30pm and will run via zoom. You can sign up via eventbrite.
This next event is going to take a slightly different format as we have invited artist Heather Peak Morison to join us for an 'Inspiration and Learning' themed session. She is already connected with the Creative Civic Change programme and it seems there is lots of synergy with our approach and ideas. Especially the Public spaces, public art, pop-up performance 'Emerging Project' group. We are very excited to welcome Heather along and hope you can join the session.
Heather Peak Morison (b.1973, UK) and Ivan Morison (b.1974, Turkey) have established an ambitious collaborative practice over the past fifteen years that transcends the divisions between art, architecture, theatre with social practice. They are co-directors of Studio Morison, their artist led creative practice which supports and realises their ideas and the many different people they work with. Central to their work is the involvement with spaces of human coexistence and with the communities that exist or may exist there.
On a societal level Studio Morison is working to re-establish civic life and on a human level it looks to bring meaning, beauty and purpose into everyday life. They are based in Weobley, Herefordshire and Abergwynant, North Wales and work internationally.
They have exhibited internationally including solo projects at Tate Modern, Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney, Vancouver Art Gallery, The National Trust, National Theatre Wales, Whitechapel Gallery, South London Gallery and represented Wales at the Venice Biennial. Heather works on many social sculptures for the Creative Civic Change Program with Local Trust, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and Ivan is tutor in sculpture at the RCA and a unit master at the Architecture Association. Their current projects are the Artist’s House as part of the Park Life initiative led in Banbury by Eastside Projects, Birmingham, MOTHER commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre and Small Bells Ring, a floating library of short stories on the Leeds Liverpool Canal commissioned by Super Slow Way with Lancashire Libraries. www.morison.info @studio_morison
