Making Moves II is a craft development initiative which builds on a seven year partnership between Staffordshire County Council and Craftspace.
In a new two year phase the partnership has evolved across the West Midlands pairing four HE institutions with a range of Local Authority Arts Development Officers. The programme will comprise residencies to explore commissioning models, touring exhibitions and opportunities for students, graduates and professional makers.
The project aims to enrich the student experience, develop opportunities for new graduates & established artists and provide opportunities for audience participation.
The 4 residency partnerships are:
The residencies which will run from September 2011 – March 2013 there will be a touring exhibition which showcases all 9 residencies that will tour throughout the partner’s regions from June 2012 – May 2013.
Making Moves, funded by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts, is led by Staffordshire County Council and Craftspace and builds on the success of a partnership which, since 1998, has explored new models for touring contemporary craft to develop both makers and new audiences.
Pilot Project with Birmingham City Council
Craftspace in partnership with Birmingham City Council Arts Service ran a pilot Making Moves II residency in the Northfield Constituency of Birmingham. Artist and milliner, Annette Lucas was artist in residence at Frankley Library from January - March 2011. Annetteworked with the Frankley community creating hats and accessories in response to their environment. The results of these was shown in an exhibition at the Library from 24th – 26th March. The residency gave Annette time to research and develop ideas for new work. Annette kept a blog with regular updates of how the residency went: http://anetlucas.blogspot.com
