There’s been a lot of work going on with this project in July. As well as the logo, designed for me by The Unloved, I added a page to this site that profiles all five artists. I’m also pleased to announce the tour details below.
We also launched a call out via the Crafts Study Centre for papers for a symposium on the exhibition’s themes at UCA Farnham, on Wednesday 2 March 2016. The symposium is jointly hosted by the Crafts Study Centre and the University for the Creative Arts. Confirmed keynote speakers are ceramicist Bouke de Vries and exhibiting artist Freddie Robins. The deadline for submissions is 20 November. More details here: CSC Symposium call out.
The Make it Ok project had its own logo, designed by The Unloved, and I created profiles for the five exhibiting and commissioned artists. There was a symposium at the Crafts Study Centre, University of the Creative Arts, Farnham, in March 2016, with keynote speakers Bouke de Vries and Freddie Robins.
