Last Station 2016-2018

I am delighted to tell you that my clients, fine artists Mary Hooper and Elise Liversedge of Elise&Mary, have just secured an Arts Council grant of £82,800 for a two year art project, Last Station.

I worked with them during the pilot project in 2013, which took the site-specific multi-media installation to the Bridport Arts Centre in Bridport, and Trinity House in Harwich.  The project produced a limited edition book by poet Kay Syrad, ‘1,000 Tasks’, a copy of which has been purchased for the collection at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.  It also produced ‘The Light Vessel’, an original choral work by jazz musician, Trevor Watts.  

An important part of the project was an extensive series of free community workshops looking at the effects of isolation and dislocation from the world we are in and the people around us: how does this feel, how can we re-connect or help others to.  This produced a wealth of work which can be found on Soundcloud, Issuu, Vimeo and Facebook.

During the intervening two years, Elise and Mary have been developing the project and cultivating relationships with venues around the country.  This work will result in a tour which will go to Eastbourne, Leeds, Hull, Scarborough and Southport between now and mid-2018.  As before, the project will include an installation, a development of ‘The Light Vessel’, and more community arts workshops in which the public can participate.  In addition, there will be an added emphasis on research, in partnership with Leeds Trinity University.  I will be supporting Elise and Mary during the whole project.

You can follow the project on Twitter and Facebook and will soon be able to download an app for your phone.  If you live in any of the areas where the show will be touring, do watch out for opportunities to take part in workshops.
