Response 1

The programme has supported my personal growth, as I undertook challenging workshops from a variety of technological industry experts, including: the BBC, blasttheory.co.uk, Invisible Flock, Urban Projections, Noise Orchestra, Anagram and many others.  

I was selected to take part in the 2017 Manchesters International Festival, as part of the '#Creative 50' programme.  As a successful candidate, from over 200 applications, I worked with other artists to produce work in response to two of four available themes.  These were: 'What is the city but the people?' and 'ToGather'.

First workshop 'Gathering Scientific Data' around Manchester

The best part of the programme was meeting and working alongside a fantastic bunch of creative people.  The experience has given me the confidence to push my practice even further and I am now plan on making other work with people from the creative group.

Response 2

It was a real privilege to work on this programme and I feel I have gained so much already.  My short-term goal is to work with more artists and create more work.  My medium-term goal is to work on another programme, with more mentoring, as I continue to develop as an artist.
It was a joy to have some recognition of my work and meet so many fantastic people.
