‘Space / Time’ Residency for Parents & Carers

Space / Time is part of Magnetic North’s Artist Development programme, for this session we are delivering it in partnership with FST. It is a creative retreat for experienced artists from any art form that asks the question “How can you continue to thrive as an artist?” Ordinarily participants travel together to a location in Scotland, but due to the current pandemic, we have rethought Space/Time as an online residency.
