Last Month at SSW: Residencies/ projects / visits

September has been busy and exciting month at SSW! We have been busy with our final AiR residencies of 2016, we have been working on projects, we have been visiting partners in Finland, we have taken part in workshops in Italy and we have welcomed a new staff member to the team!

Andrew Dunlop joined us at the start of September to take on the role as Arts Administration Assistant! Already we dont know what we would do without him!

We had a great month of AiR residencies with artists Katriona Gillespie, Rowan Markson, Katie Spragg and Cath Whippey. Again we are sad to say goodbye to group but welcome them back anytime!

As part of the AiR programme, we ran our final SSW Public talk for the season with invited artist Hannah Imlach: www.hannahimlach.com
