The Draw to Perform residency program for Drawing Performance practice.
The D2P Residency program is a unique opportunity for new and developing professional artists and art students to engage in the dynamic artistic discipline of drawing performance art. The program provides the foundation to develop drawing and performance skills and to translate creative practice into live action. This rigorous 15 days structured program of mentored residency includes one-on-one tutorials, workshops, intensive studio time, studio visits and artist talks by UK drawing and performance artists. The program is headed by artist and curator Ram Samocha, who is internationally acclaimed and the founder of Draw to Perform.
The program included guided tours to key exhibitions and art events in Brighton and London and ended with a day of live drawing performances to celebrate and showcase the output of this creative time.

A review by artist Zoea Tania (Singapore) – D2P residency, 16-30 November 2019
Thank you firstly for choosing me to be a part of DTP. You might not know but this journey is very important to me and I came at a time that was both significant and urgent. I can safely say that DTP has changed my life and given me direction. The programme is so generous and dynamic, and that spirt, I am sure, came from you.
I hope one day to repay DTP and give back to it for it has given me so much.
This time in Brighton like you predicted, has so quickly come to a close, and I am so sad, but I will keep this time so close to my heart. Thank you so so so much.
很盼望有一天能够回到Brighton 帮助DTP 发扬光大，因为它真的帮了我很多。
像ram 你预料的一样, 我们在这儿的时间迅速地结束了，我十分地不舍得，但我会永远记得这段旅程。再次，谢谢你！
