Residency, Level Centre, Rowsley, Derbyshire; 2011
Curated by David Gilbert
Five artists were invited to spend a week at the Level Centre, home to First Movement, during the first week of June 2011.
Marc Atkinson, Marianne Holm Hansen, Bob Levene, Tim Skinner and Neil Wissink were invited to come to the Level Centre to explore the creative potential of the building, the technology within it, and the surrounding area.
First Movement works with learning disabled people, creating projects that develop and promote their unique creativity. First Movement is now signaling its leadership in this area of work, and working towards the establishment of the Level Centre as the National Centre for Digital Arts with Learning Disabled People.
The centre serves as a natural focus for local creative people, and is increasingly becoming established as a place where artists come together for development, collaboration and creation.
