Live Chat: Arts and Place
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Join us to find out more about the innovative Arts and Place Master’s programme at Dartington Arts School with the programme lead Jo Joelson. Jo will give a short introduction to the programme and then hand over to you for questions.
Open to practitioners and curators working in any art form including performance, writing, soundart, moving image, photography, digital art and fine art, the Arts and Place course puts particular emphasis on collaborative practice in response to an expanded understanding of place. The course offers a unique residency-based learning programme. Arts residencies are a significant part of the contemporary arts industry and of contemporary art making.
We are increasingly confronted with complex challenges that require new ways of knowing and forms of collaborative engagement and practice, which can be addressed in this master’s enquiry. This course enables you to develop your creative practice and your professional practice knowledge and network alongside each other.

Jo Joelson is a London based artist, researcher and writer. Having originally trained as a lighting designer she pursued a career as a light artist working across art, music and theatre before forming the art partnership London Fieldworks, working over two decades to produce works that respond to ecology as a complex inter-working of social, natural and technological worlds. These works, often socially engaged and involving extended periods of research, have been made in the landscape, for the gallery, screen and radio. Jo has been awarded International Fellowships and residencies to undertake research and fieldwork, including at the Space Sciences Laboratory, University of California; Headlands Center for the Arts, USA; Space Plasma Physics Group, Dept. Physics and Astronomy, University of Leicester; Skaftfell Center for Visual Arts, Iceland; Vatnasafn/Library of Water, Iceland; Living Art Museum, Iceland; Northeast Greenland National Park; and Reserva Ecológica De Guapiaçu, Brasil.
