About this Event

There is a brand new format for the sixth season of contemporary artists' talks, presented via a partnership between the University of Worcester’s Fine Art department and Meadow Arts. We're still working with some of the most exciting contemporary artists currently making work in the UK, who will be talking about their artwork, ideas and the processes they use, in online talks. Please book a place so that we can send you the link to join in on Zoom. talks are free, but you can support the work of our charity by choosing to make a donation.

SPUR is a 6-month virtual residency to support the next generation of young artists, made up of graduating students of 2020. From an open call there were 125 applications from across the world, and all been invited to join the SPUR COMMUNITY. The SPUR participants are working over 6 months using a bespoke digital platform SPUR.WORLD, developed by Berlin based Omsk Social Club, which launched on 20th August 2020. SPUR participants have formed an online community to explore uncharted processes of both art-making exercises of co-creation, commitment and imagineering.

Participants use self-built avatars and new pseudo personas, rather than their existing identities, finding new modes of thinking and creating. Together we are forging an artist network without the usual boundaries enforced by IRL world, visiting virtual worlds, developing work through mentoring and peer-to-peer relationships. 16 of the artists are ‘CORE’ members, working more intensively across the 6 months. They attend weekly sessions, which take place online, hosted by arts professionals from a wide range of backgrounds.
