Urban exchange research #1

I’ve recently returned from a research trip to Southern France; Montpellier, Marseille and Avignon. I am at the beginning of investigating making contact with artists and arts organisations in the region with a view to setting up an artist exchange programme with the Yorkshire region as part of Compass Live Art.

The programme would be focussed on working around;

  • the urban and urban spaces
  • the public realm
  • engaging direct with people who live and work in cities
  • exploring the future of cities and their communities
  • the role of creativity in the city

My colleague artist and performer Charlie Fox http://counterproductions.me/ who’s currently living near Avignon, very kindly put me up for the trip and accompanied me on my research meetings.
