Socially Engaged Adventures: a-n article

In 2011 artists Ania Bas and Ruthie Ford embarked on a co-mentoring project initially supported through Yorkshire Artspace and the Engaged Practice Starter Studio Programme (of which Ruthie was one of our first beneficiaries).  Their co-mentoring relationship is still going and they recently did an interview with Andrew Brayant for a-n magazine's Artist Talking feature where they talked about socially engaged practice, the importance of process, whether it be performance or embroidery, and the artists’ relationship to critical reading, writing and debate.   Read the interview here...

They documented their 'Socially Engaged Adventures' by creating a project blog (via the a-n Artists Talking blog platform) which captures the journey of co-mentoring between Ruthie and Ania and thier explorations into socially engaged issues, language and practice whilst visiting artists, arts projects and arts organisations working in the field across the UK.  Read Social Engaged Adventures blog here....
