Draw to Perform Residency Program

6-20 October 2018, Brighton, UK


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.
