I've just got back from a residency in Marrakech. It was great fun. I met some really lovely folk and worked like a camel in the Western Sahara.
The residency was organized by the highly hospitable, generous and incredibly hard working Amy Smyth-Said and Saad-Eddine Said over at Terre Sans Frontiere (http://www.terresansfrontiere.org/).
I was working alongside a group of international artists and musicians in a communal residence and studio space. Over the course of seven or eight days we worked together to create a group show at the Remp'Art Gallery and a musical extravaganza at the Theatre Royal.
I can safely say that the group of people I found myself amongst are some of the nicest I've ever met, so although I missed my family terribly whilst there, I am compensated by the fact that I have made many new friends.
The exhibition we made is on until the 4th October, if you find yourself in Marrakech feel free to go and check it out.
Here's a pic of the space on the private view night and a drawing from the piece I submitted.
