For three weeks CRATE was occupied by three recently graduated BA Fine Art Students from University of the Creative Arts, Canterbury.
Layla Moore, Madeline Jones and Verity Hime were offered the use of our project spaces between the 18th September and the 10th October, to collaborate on the development of work and ideas that emerged during their studies.
Graduates received mentoring sessions with Leigh Clarke, Benedict Drew, Matthew de Pulford and Trish Scott, as well as being supported on-site by Charley Vines and the Programming Team.
There was intermittent public access to the space, including "INTERRUPTION", a projection/collage event on the 3rd October, where participants were invited to bring materials to create immersive and playful outcomes.
The three weeks culminated in a public opening on 10th October, demonstrate the function of the CRATE project spaces, as a site for both work, play and display.
The award is designed as a means for a brief but valuable point between the structures offered within education and independent practice.
