Over the past month, the winter edition of the Making Marks: Connect ME Digital Residency has been in full swing. With mentorship from multimedia artist Manal AlDowayan, Dina Khatib (UAE) and Ollie Cameron (UK), and Carolin Schnurrer (UK) and Meshal Al-Obaidallah (KSA) have been creating new collaborative work that considers how digital tools can encourage connectivity across borders. From thousands of miles apart, the pairs have produced two new digital artworks that will be available to view via the Making Marks website on Thursday 25 February.
Join us on Wednesday 3 March at 1pm GMT with Dina, Ollie, Carolin and Meshal, as they share their experiences of the residency and present the artworks they have created.
Making Marks: ConnectME is a collaborative digital residency programme, in partnership with the British Council, focused on connecting artists aged 18-30 based in the GCC countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia) and the United Kingdom.
