We will be working with artist Winnie Herbstein in uncovering our archive and reflecting on past projects and methodologies that we wish to explore further over the next six months. Herbstein’s interest in forms of organising will aid our conversations, informing the way we wish to develop by questioning what our organisation can do with what has already been done.
We are happy to be accompanied by Winnie in this process of learning and we’ll be sharing materials and conversations as they develop throughout the mentoring process.
