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.

Expanding on his project Relic Traveller, Larry Achiampong will host a night of films linking themes of blackness, black technopoetics and science fiction.

Scratch Night – Claire Davies & Verity Heald
