All at Quarrylab were delighted that our partners Nottingham Trent University hosted our third Forum event on 30th November. This was a chance for us to showcase some of the artists we have been working with this year, and of course, introduce the project to a new audience. It was great that members of the art and design staff from NTU were able to attend as well as other new comers. So we will definitely to be seeing some new faces at Quarrylab next year.
In attendance representing Quarrylab partners were Pip Spoerry, Head of Visual Arts at NTU, and John Ludden CEO of BGS.
Roy gave an overview of the work done in 2016, and spoke about plans for 2017 and beyond, specifically an ambitious exhibition project to be curated by Mark Rawlinson of University of Nottingham at the BGS Headquarters at Keyworth next summer. Possibilities for future projects with NAE and RSPB were also discussed.
Presentations were made by artists Sardul Gill, Trudi Entwistle and Beverley Bennett, who showed examples of their practice, and spoke about the Quarrylab project and how they will be working with us in the future.
