Journey Around Your Room
Mansions of The Future
A 4-part workshop series delivered in partnership with There’s No Place Like Home: Justice, Migration and the Arts & inspired by Xavier de Maistre’s documentation of his house arrest. Photographer Matt Snellin will help you to explore ‘your room’ in lockdown, through the medium of photography. In the final workshop we will learn how to photograph objects, textures and details close up, using our phones to experiment with macro photography. The full workshop series can be found on the MotF blog page.

There’s No Place Like Home #29 Peter Bonnell
QUAD’s Programme Team are sharing highlights from FORMAT’s mass-isolation project @massisolationformat that shows images and experiences shared during the lockdown due to Covid-19.

Fermynwoods Contemporary Art
Fermynwooods are continuing their Alternative Provision with students from The CE Academy remotely. In addition to providing an invaluable opportunity for creative expression, they are continuing to work with them to complete their Arts Awards qualifications, at a time when many qualifications are not available. For this first distance workshop, students worked via a secure online networking and film system with Fermynwoods staff and videographer Martin Steed to create a short film about life during lockdown. This was entered into Northampton Film Festival’s ‘Kind of a Big Deal In My Living Room’ lockdown film competition.


Digital Portrait
QUAD invites you to create a digital self-portrait from home. This is for any artist, of any age, anywhere. Perhaps you will make a collage and photograph it; you may make a play-dough sculpture and capture it in an image; maybe you’ll transform a room in your house into a photography studio, or you might develop your design skills by creating a digital collage.
We encourage the use of any mark-making material, be it paint, playdough, embroidery, or collage; wherever your creative interests take you or other digital means such as photography or design software. One rule; it must be a digital work that could be printed. Selected submissions will be shared in a digital showcase and possible print exhibition at QUAD when we safely open our doors again, we will also share the works digitally. Works will be selected by QUAD curators and highlighted via our social media channels.


Haarlem Artist Takeover
This half of the week Collectivism Artist Hayleigh Longman is taking over our insta account. @hayleighlongman shared one half of the week with artist @emma.reynard who did the other half, so they are doing the insta takeover that way too. It was a great way of being able to have both of them, and shared in the spirit of the residency perfectly. Last year in May Haarlem Artspace began the Collectivism Residency and opened our ground floor studios and outside space to all resident artists. The Arts Council supported ‘Collectivism’ residency was curated and facilitated by artists Olivia Punnett & Alice Gale-Feeny.
