The Summer School offers an opportunity to work alongside other artists and peers to critique, discuss and develop individual art practices, and make new work with the opportunity for a public presentation at Wysing. The programme also offers opportunities for discussion and research visits.
During the Summer School Wysing will be hosting the arts organisation Electra in-residence and there will be an ongoing events programme curated by Electra that participants will be able to attend. Electra curates, commissions and produces projects by artists working across sound, moving image, performance and the visual arts. At the heart of their practice is a process-based relationship between artist, curator and audiences, which seeks to give the projects space to find their own rhythm, public outputs, and discourse. Electra's core aim is to foster a dialogue between a range of disciplines of contemporary artistic practice, to provide a platform for debate and engaged dynamic investigations of urgent social, political and cultural questions. Projects include: Someone Else Can Clean Up This Mess (Flat Time House, 2014-15); Her Noise: Feminisms and the Sonic (Tate Modern, 2012); Sound Escapes (Space 2009); The Wire 25 (2007).
