Delighted and honoured to be Marie Claire’s pen pal. Watch this space for the beauty and rawness that will unfold.✍️Pen pals / Rélations épistolaires is a collaborative project originally instigated by @ccov_mtl CCOV ( Centre de Création O Vertigo, Montreal, Canada) working in this edition in collaboration with Take Me Somewhere, Glasgow @tmsomewhere. The project is a transcontinental sharing of questions, ideas and practices between artists living in Montreal and Glasgow whose creative practices intersect with aspects of ‘wellbeing’.The 3 month exchange across cities will use letter writing, digital exchange and video letters to share thoughts, reflections and questions surrounding how performance can address wellbeing whether that be ecological wellbeing, community wellbeing or personal wellbeing. Our hope with this project is that we can shine a light on the research that artists are doing locally and bring it into an international conversation.The correspondence period will be from January 16 – April 20 2023 culminating in a public online event at the end of April 2023. More information about how to attend to be announced. Link to the project in biog.
