Making Marks KW Digital Programme

6 July '20 at 10:00 am - 22 July '20 at 3:00 pm

We were proud to partner with the British Council on the finale of our Making Marks Kuwait programme, the group show for which was unfortunately cancelled due to Covid-19.

Over four weeks, we hosted a free digital programme of artist Instagram takeovers, talks, and workshops aimed at early-career artists in the UK, Kuwait, and beyond, celebrating the project and offering exclusive insight into the work that the artists produced in response to the theme of international exchange and collaboration.

In August 2020, all eight artists from the UK and Kuwait will have the work they created in response to the project showcased on a new Making Marks platform. This platform will host all future Making Marks commissions, including the upcoming digital residency Connect ME.
