Venice Bienale student fellowships

Students taking part in the British Council Fellowship outside the British Pavillion

Tegen Tossel, a student on the MA Arts and Place at Dartington Arts School, is currently on a British Council fellowship at the Venice Beinnale. As part of her project she is inviting members of the public to send postcards she has designed back to Dartington, drawing on ideas of collaboration and community involvement which are taught by Jo Joelson and guest lecturers on the degree programme. 

The project, called “postcard anon”, engages with the ephemeral nature of human engagement with the city, especially in the context of Venice’s history as a trading post, a place where people and things have passed through.

Postcard anon looks at mapping the transient nature of people using postcards to create connections. Each postcard asks the receiver to take part in the project through a short task.
