Get The Dark Out, Lisa Selby & Dudley

Nottingham-based artist Lisa and Dudley have created a new series of work with a focus on changing public perceptions around addiction and incarceration, helping to connect people who are affected by these issues. The artists chose to use this period to care for themselves through practice, to then help others to process, reflect and make – making trauma count in society.

The day was split into two sessions – the morning session focused on writing for voice, the afternoon session on writing about the artwork of others. Though the two are intertwined this meant we could work with both writing as practice and writing on practice.
