ASSOCIATE ARTISTS

For 2016 to 2018 our five Associate Artists will make a valuable contribution to the creative life of Ovalhouse, working closely with us to develop audiences, create new work, and be a part of a new peer-to-peer support network. Associates also mentor artists from Learning and Participation projects.
