Open Plan is a studio programme designed with artist Sophie Chapman.
Forty-eight artists based in Sussex and Kent were selected via an open call to come together over four weeks to share space, ideas and processes and support each other in generating new artworks.
Artists are grouped according to shared interests and each week an invited workshop artist supports them to explore their ideas and collaborate further. At the end of each week, the group have the option to create a public event together.
