Anita Clarke and Lucas Kao Chi-Peng / In Motion (Scotland)

On behalf of The Work Room in Glasgow, Anita Clark will present the thinking behind and the impact of the “in motion” project, a digital distribution scheme for screendance artists in Scotland. The screendance film series, In Motion, was produced by Katrina McPherson, Lewis Landini, Owa Barua and Monika Smekot. #InMotion18 was commissioned by The Space Arts. Anita will be presenting the project with one of the participating artists to give an insight into how it could be developed as a model for future collaborative distribution projects. We are so incredibly pleased to have Anita involved in the event.
