Practice/Process is a series of professional development meet ups for emerging artists, designers and other creative practitioners hosted by Possible Worlds.

Join photo-based artist Olivia Johnston, painter Ryan Smeeton, and print artist and Possible Worlds co-founder Melanie Yugo in a discussion on artist/creative residencies. Creatives who have participated in residencies from various disciplines are also invited to share their experiences.

Drawing from their recent experiences in Senegal, Spain, and the Philippines respectively, Olivia, Ryan, and Melanie will share their insights on finding, applying for, and financing residencies, as well as managing time and projects while away, and how their practices have been informed by their residencies since coming home.

Regardless of where you are in your career, residencies are opportunities to dive into research, learn new techniques, make connections to larger art communities, and access resources, ideas, and landscapes unavailable at home. Whether you’re curious about the possibilities of residencies, or you have your own experiences to share, join us on Sunday September 24 to discuss how to make a residency happen, and how to make the most out of it once you’re there.
