The NICE Programme


In 2013, after a good few collaborative projects together, fellow artist Vicky Holbrough and I embarked on a new project called NICE. Nice stands for Next steps In Creative Experience and is a programme of activity that works with early stage artists. More info can be found at www.nicenortheast.co.uk. The six artist we worked with were Adam Bligh, Rebekah Finnigan, Elizabeth O'Toole, Becki Harper, Daniel Slater and Paul Murray. Here are a few photos...





It was a great project to be involved in, with some crackin early stage artists! It made me think about my practice, reflect on how I would like to develop further and also get inspiration from 6 talented individuals. We also went on a whole load of trips to a variety of artists studios, organisation and galleries around the North East. We also went over for a tour of Leeds with East Street Arts.

This isn't the end of NICE either. We're hoping to get further funding to run it again.
