Are these opportunities to explore new locations, develop different ways of working and build new creative relationships or simply a time to kick back and relax?

We will explore how new environments can re-energise flagging projects and offer fresh creative avenues but also the challenges and issues of working in new locations.

Czech artists Kateřina Čupová and Štěpánka Jislová, and French artist Marine des Mazery, all of whom are currently on residency in Kendal and British artist Sayra Begum who recently spend time as resident comic artists in Prague will describe their experiences and present some of the work created during their stay.

In partnership with the Czech Literary Centre and Comic Art Europe
