This workshop encourages students to develop a sensitivity to their immediate environment, and to engage with the building and general location in which they work. They will be supported by Articulate directors, Margaret Roberts and Emma Wise to use the space as a project space, as it was always intended. PROXIMITY participants will work in the space for 4 days, and open it to the public for the weekend.

Project space work is one of the processes we invite artists to engage in when participating in the Articulate program generally. While many artists show  exhibitions of artwork made elsewhere, the project space project program has been devised for artists who want to experiment spatially by devising and/or developing the work in the space in which it is to be shown.
