KE'KU:N RESIDENCIES

Funded by Aberdeen City Council


In spring 2019 we provided 4 artists the opportunity of a week-long paid artist development residency hosted by Ke'ku:n Studio.


Each residency included a free workshop for the community and final weekend exhibition.


The project focused on installation and professional skills development, providing much needed versitile studio/display space, public engagement and highlighting art and artists in the area.
