As part of the NESTA, Arts Council England and AHRC ’Digital R&D Fund for the Arts’, Happenstance created six residencies at three of the UK’s most vibrant and exciting arts organisations: Site Gallery in Sheffield, Lighthouse in Brighton and Spike Island in Bristol; placing pairs of technologists on 12-week residencies for a period of collaborative working and co-creation.
The pilot was produced by Caper, with the University of Warwick as a research partner. Katherine worked as a Research Associate on behalf of The University of Warwick Cultural Policy Department, led by Dr Chris Bilton and with Ruth Leary.
