Why we like it:
Supporting 20 artist residencies over 20 weeks is no small task. Unit 7′s ambitious programme is inspiring. They have also organised one on one development sessions for the residents with Amy McKelvie (Assistant Curator for the Schools and Teachers Programme at Tate Britain), Sarah Tripp (lecturer in Fine Art at The Glasgow School of Art) and Jenny Brownrigg (The Glasgow School of Art Gallery Curator). You can keep updated on the progress of the residencies on Unit 7′s website which will be updated weekly, sharing new images by each participating resident artist.
