About British Council Net//Work Residency

Net//Work was a four-week residency that ran from 25 October-19 November 2021 developed in partnership with British Council offering artists a period of reflection, research, practice, skills exchange and professional networking opportunities focused on digital artistic practices and technologies.

Wysing worked with artists Laura Andreato, Halik Azeez, Wajeeha Batool and Wendy Teo, with Anna Bunting-Branch as Artist Advisor. Artists took part in a programme of activities including peer-to-peer exchange, mentoring, group critiques and presentations.
