September saw our Document artists launch #critday. Between 23rd and 29th September 2017 each of the artists instigated a crit within their studio groups or at a nearby venue in order to encourage the networking and peer to peer learning that can happen in tis this most valuable of activities.

Crits took place at NN Contemporary Art (Northampton), studioName (Leicester), [gP] (Lincoln), QUAD (Derby), Haarlem Artspace (Wirksworth) and Backlit (Nottingham). Here’s visual record of what happened. We’ll bring you feedback from the sessions in due course.
