We're pleased to announce that we have been granted a British Council Artist International Development Fund grant (Yay!) and can now start putting in to action our plans for Phase One of the project.
During the summer we will be visiting silk mills in Sudbury to document the processes that go into the manufacture of silk and speak to the people that continue the long history of the town's silk heritage.
Later in the year we will be travelling to China during September and October to visit silk mills, museums, sericulture plants and museum spaces, with the help of our partners Jiangsu Artall Cultural Industries Ltd, and Yantai Art Museum to learn, document, photograph and record sound and look at potential venues for the exhibitions in 2020/21.
Keep an eye on this blog, and our social media feeds, for updates as the project progresses.
