Dwell Time, in collaboration with Yorkshire Visual Arts Network (YVAN) have published a series of podcasts featuring interviews with local artists, that focus on topics such as mental health and the impact of COVID-19 on their practice.
The ‘Dwell Awhile’ podcast features conversations with artists interviewed by Dwell Time co-curator Alice Bradshaw.
Alice spoke with several local artists for the podcast, including:
- Sam Read, a multi-disciplinary artist, founding member of GLOAM studios in Sheffield, and member of The Retro Bar collective.
- Bryan Tweddle, a Halifax based multidisciplinary artist and co-founder, director and collaborator on various local and international cultural and community festivals and events.
- Claye Bowler, a Huddersfield based artist exploring queer and trans narratives including running Yonder Gallery, a queer & trans artist-led residency programme with gallery space.
- Hannah Lamb and Lucy Lound, Sheffield based artists and co-founders of WOMP Space, a studio and project space supporting emerging artists.
The podcasts are available to watch on the Dwell Time YouTube channel.
In choosing which artists to interview, Alice says she mapped out a network of artists recommended as ‘resilient’ by their peers.
With her Dwell Time co-curators Vanessa Haley and Lenny Szrama, Alice talks to the artists about how they have been since their initial conversations in 2019, and how Covid-19 and lockdown have impacted their practices and mental wellbeing.
Dwell Time is an award-winning, not-for-profit publication reflecting on mental wellbeing, established in 2018 by Alice Bradshaw, Vanessa Haley and Lenny Szrama.
