We are thrilled that Paul Russ (Artistic Director) and Jim Hendley (Producer) will be contributing and hosting events at Per/Forming Futures alongside Matthias Sperling our Research Artist, who will be presenting a work in progress of No-How Generator which builds on the research he shared in March. Regional artist Kerryn Wise, who will be in residence in November, will also share Awakenings.

This type of intersection between university contexts and the cultural sector has been a heavy feature of the three-year ADiE project. Further, the intersection with, and potential impact of, the Artistic PhD to the arts sector, and on audiences more widely. The final event as part of this project will be held in August at Zodiak, to include a presentation of a Utopian Manifesto on the future of the Artistic Doctorate from the three partner countries; UK, Finland and Sweden.
