DRIVE is a practice development programme supporting five artists over ten months. As part of the programme, we are holding this professional seminar that will bring together curators and producers to discuss the ways they work with moving image and its practitioners.

How do curators and programmers approach working with moving image?
What do they think are the challenges from their perspective – practical, engagement, critical?
What’s their approach to working with artists?
What do they think artists should consider in approaching them?

The panel is:
Benjamin Cook, Director, LUX
Steve Fletcher, Founder and Co-Director, Carroll / Fletcher Gallery, London
Adam Pugh, Artists’ Moving Image Project Manager, Independent Cinema Office
Caroline Smith,  independent arts consultant and creative producer

Participants will include the DRIVE artists: Jessica Ashman, Katerina Athanasopoulou, George Eksts, Sarah Evans and Chris Newby, and artists showing in the Parts & Labour exhibition.

Parts & Labour, an exhibition of experimental animation selected from an international open call, and new work by Noriko Okaku (co commissioned by Animate, QUAD and D-Lab), opens at QUAD that evening and there’ll be a pre-opening reception that everyone attending the seminar is welcome to attend.

The DRIVE seminar is open to other artists, curators and others interested in contemporary visual arts practice. We are limiting capacity, there is a small charge, and you need to book your place.
