Llansteffan (9th – 12th April 2015)

I met Lauren Heckler on the Connecting Creativity Artist in Residence programme in Tranås, Sweden.

Since the residency Lauren has set up an arts organisation, Site Sit.

<<Site Sit is an artist-led organisation formed by Lauren Heckler and Sophie Lindsey, as a way to explore the potential of different sites and environments for art, facilitate our own arts practice whilst giving opportunities to other artists to create new work and transfer skills. We also aim to develop a site-conscious way of working whilst challenging preconceived ideas about traditional art spaces/locations and the typical arts audience>>

Their first project Village Halls, began with an exhibition in Llansteffan Memorial Hall. As part of the exhibition weekend there was a sketchbook walk, organised by Oriel Myrddin.
