The Live/Work studio at Wysing is a combined home and studio space where artists, curators, writer and musicians come for longer periods of time to research new work. 

During 2013 the Live/Work studio was occupied by artist Gustav Metzger, in 2012 by Jamie Shovlin and during 2014 curator and writer Kathy Noble worked from the studio.

During the ten months Kathy spent living and working at Wysing, she contributed to our 25th birthday programme including curating the group exhibition Hey, I'm Mr Poetic, full details here, and co-curating the ambitious residency and events programme Futurecamp, details here.

Kathy was also involved in organising an Artists' Masterclass retreat with Dora Garcia, details here, and in supporting our young artists' programme, Circuit, working with them on the project I am the warrior, details here.

Kathy also supported a number of artists with studio visits and advice on writing funding applications, and has contributed to a publication to mark Wysing's 25th birthday, to be launched in early 2015.
