‘Doremifasolasido’ is a project by Jocelyn McGregor – it is an annual, peripatetic group residency that invites emerging artists from around the country to Cumbria to forge links between artists and arts organisations working in urban and rural settings. Each year artist participants are selected by partners from around the country. During the week-long residency participating artists create work, from sculpture to performance and film, in response to the site, culminating in an Open Weekend and exhibition of work made over the residency.
That’s it in a nutshell… but the best way of describing it as a platform for emerging artists who want push and question their practices. It’s an opportunity to meet other artists in the same boat and work with organisations around Cumbria which have something a little out of the ordinary to offer. It’s an intensive week that aims to kickstart future collaborations, art works, projects or just broaden your network. So that’s why it’s always on the move and ever-evolving – the only way to keep up with us is to keep in touch!
