Leverhulme Artist-in-Residence Funding award for Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies
Artist Catriona Taylor and SCDS Associate Director Dr Alex Murdoch have been awarded Leverhulme Trust funding for a one-year residency by the artist based in History, Classics & Archaeology.
Catriona Taylor will build on the success of an earlier residency at the National Library of Scotland to work with SCDS researchers to develop workshops and an exhibition exploring aspects of migration to, as well as from, Scotland. She will commit two days a week to work with SCDS, developing her practice by looking at contemporary Diaspora narratives and engaging with immigrant communities in Scotland. She will interrogate current research to bring her practice up to date and weave together various aspects of her craft such as printing, film-making and sound installation.
