The first Professional Practice Masterclass for 2019 is with Hannah Kemp Welch on Monday 14th January, 4:30-6, Performance studio.
Hannah Kemp-Welch is a social practice sound artist, working collaboratively with communities, educators and artists, to listen to the world around. Using a range of strategies such as sound recording, audio interventions, broadcasts, performance and digital making, works explore communication and ask how do we listen? and who can be heard?
Hannah has worked with communities across the UK, and shown works at Tate Modern, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Firstsite Colchester, and Nottingham Contemporary; Hannah is currently the Open House artist in residence at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge.
This session will focus on setting up as freelance artist, working with large and small institutions, and packaging your practice for residencies, commissions and open calls. Within this, there’ll be focus on socially engaged practice and community arts, exploring current debates in arts education. Students will gain insight into the value of collaboration and knowledge exchange with community groups and we’ll discuss strategies for engaging new audiences with sound arts.
