Throughout 2018 we will host artists in-residence working across a range of practices who will be developing new work within an atmosphere of collaboration.
February, June, August and November
Tessa Norton and her family will be in-residence four times during 2018 and will explore how the experience of parenthood has changed her perception of time, and the implications that this renewed perspective has for thinking about art.

March, April and August
Phoebe Collings-James and Last Yearz Interesting Negro/ Jamila Johnson-Small will create a collaborative work embodied through a symbiotic relationship between dance, music and sculpture, asking what an anti-assimilationist practice might look and sound like in 2018.
Julia Crabtree & William Evans who were previously in residence in 2014 will return to Wysing to work with invited collaborators to expand upon key themes from recent research including botany, fungal ecologies, co-evolving, feminist sci-fi, bodies and critters.
May, September, November and December
Joe Moran will work over three residencies with dancers and dramaturges to develop a body of research traversing expanded choreography, discourse and form conceived in a spirit of urgency, collectivity and self-definition.
