Aspex Residencies

Annis Joslin & Arran Mackintosh (1 Febraury – 17 April 2012)
The artists’ residency was centred on the question “What Next for Culture in Portsmouth?” culminating in a conference at the New Theatre Royal in Portsmouth. In response to this question Annis Joslin created a film, and Arran Mackintosh responded through participatory illustrations.  Both artists were at different stages in their careers. The residency provided Annis Joslin with an opportunity to develop contacts across the city and engage with other cultural providers in the region. The film that she created will also be used as a tool to inform internal programming. Arran Mackintosh was a recent graduate from Portsmouth University. The residency provided him with an opportunity to work in an entirely new way, responding to a brief and working alongside a more experienced artist.
