One to One Advice Sessions
With Steven Bode – Film and Video Umbrella
In partnership with Northern Film and Media’s Film Club Programme and Practice Makes Practice we hosted four One-to-One advice sessions at The NewBridge Project. These were catered towards artists with a moving image practice or interest in developing this side of their practice.
Steven Bode, is the Director of Film & Video Umberlla (FVU). In his twenty-five years with the organisation, he has worked closely with many leading artists in the field of the moving-image, including internationally acclaimed figures such as Gillian Wearing, Jane & Louise Wilson, Mark Leckey and Isaac Julien.
Steven is also one of the prime movers in the Jerwood/FVU awards: an annual initiative for commissioning and supporting young, emerging talents.
These informal advisory sessions were aimed at developing a wide-ranging dialogue around artists practice. They involved the following areas:
•Looking at and discussing your work
•Advice on developing your practice and looking at other works that may be interesting in relation to this
•Advice on exhibition possibilities, appropriate organisations and events to approach
•Advice about promoting your work
In partnership with Northern Film and Media’s Film Club Programme and Practice Makes Practice we will be hosting five One-to-One advise sessions at The NewBridge Project between September and January. Practitioners include; Steven Bode, Director, Film and Video Umbrella; Guy Sherwin, Artist; Ben Cook, Director of LUX; Lindsay Seers, artist and Maggie Ellis, Head of Artists Moving Image and Film London.
