It was wonderful to have many Directors and Curators from across the UK at Wysing for the annual Plus Tate residential which was focussed on embedding artistic research into public programming. I really enjoyed hearing from Annie Fletcher, Curator at Van Abbemuseum. What they are doing at there is seriously inspiring – making visible the focus of their curatorial discourse in engaging and inspiring programming. It was great to hear too from colleagues from the Banff Centre and Townhouse, Cairo. Learnt a lot, as ever, and really loved The Grantchester Pottery‘s transformation of our Window Room. If you ever get the chance to work with Giles Round – grab it. The man is a generous and  genial genius.

About donnalynas

I've been Director of Wysing Arts Centre since 2005 and have worked with a lot of very talented people to develop it into a genuinely inspiring and creative place. Before Wysing I was Curator at South London Gallery (1999-2005) and Touring Exhibitions Organiser (1995-97) and then Curator (1997-99) at Modern Art Oxford. Previous to that I had studios in Reading and Dundee - I studied design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and then spent five years making stuff and organising shows in my studio and empty shops.
