Larry Achiampong, Claire Davies, Ruth Beale, Forager Collective

Work in Common is a series of short residencies that encourage artists to experiment with different ways of working – either testing out a speculative idea, or developing new collaborations. Each artist will use the spaces at Primary, to produce and present work to an audience, through screening, rehearsal, performances, workshops and meals.
