Since the award of the bursaries the three initiatives, Chance Finds Us, Spectrum Almanac and 3 Degrees of Separation have been busy making progress with their projects. Several of these sites have gone live.

This has involved interviews with artists, studio visits and commissioned writings. Each initiative is slightly different, based on their original proposals to the Critical Dialogue Group and either weighted towards practical events and exchanges or commissioned new texts on their practice in magazine or in published book format.

Chance Finds Us ( led on by artists Nick Kennedy & Anne Vibeke Mou)

Spectrum Almanac (led on by artists Sebastian Trend, Tom Whittle and Adam Hogarth)

These initial 3 are supported through the Critical Dialogue Bursaries but also a further two are being championed here.
