About gobscure's Residency

gobscure makes art – sound – performance as gobscure, and writes as burn. They have long worked with creative resistances: ‘small’ spaces where power tips. Their residency will introduce and expand on chokepoints: chokepoints are blockages that disrupt systems.

Their residency will take place over 4 weeks: the first at the end of April, the second week at the end of May, the third at the end of June and fourth in July. The first part of their residency will engage with and focus on staff and outsiders to NewBridge. gobscure will use publicly accessible spaces like the Shieldfield area surrounding NewBridge, the bookshop and the gallery for walking, rolling, strolling, eating together and asking questions.

About Practice Makes Practice

A black background with practice makes written in white capital letters in a square shape, with a white squiggle across the top.

Practice makes Practice focuses on developing artistic talent and equipping individuals with the necessary skills to manage their artistic career, bridging the gap between art school, studio practice, the gallery and beyond. We do this through a regular programme of:

events / workshops / opportunities / talks / field-trips / exchanges / mentoring

Helping create a forum for shared learning, critical conversation, space for networks to cultivate and alternative models of practice to develop.

Practice makes Practice is programmed through suggestions from studio and associate members, ensuring what we do is artist-led and develops in response to the needs and interests of our members.
We are open to all suggestions, ideas, events, people, methods and opinions you would like to put forward to the Practice makes Practice programme. We can provide bursaries to invite artists, organisations and industry specialists to NewBridge.
