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.
