Dwell Awhile

Dwell Time and Yorkshire Visual Arts Network (YVAN) are delighted to announce their partnership on a new series of podcasts ‘Dwell Awhile’. These podcasts revisit conversations with artists interviewed by Dwell Time co-curator Alice Bradshaw for her ‘Resilience is Futile’ writer residency. ‘Resilience is Futile’ was a YVAN and Corridor 8 collaboration exploring the uncritical term ‘resilience’ within the Yorkshire visual arts networks. Alice mapped out a network of artists recommended as ‘resilient’ by their peers. With her Dwell Time co-curators Vanessa Haley and Lenny Szrama, Alice talks to the artists about how they have been since their initial conversations in 2019, and how Covid-19 and lockdown have impacted their practices and mental wellbeing. The podcasts will be published in October 2020 on the Dwell Time Press and YVAN websites. The team are also thrilled to welcome Ashleigh Armitage on board as the designer for the podcasts and rebrand of Dwell Time. Ashleigh is a designer working within the arts, cultural and educational sectors and is part of Dust Collective. Dwell Time is an award winning, not-for-profit arts publication reflecting on mental wellbeing. Produced and curated by Alice Bradshaw, Vanessa Haley & Lenny Szrama, founded in 2018. Yorkshire Visual Arts Network is a visual arts sector support organisation as a voice and advocate for the sector in Yorkshire & Humber, delivering a programme that effects change in the profile, reputation and sustainability of the visual arts and artists in Yorkshire & Humber. YVAN prioritises individual practitioners and small-scale initiatives, including those that are artist-led. YVAN is funded by Arts Council England, through a partnership with The Art House, and are part of the national Contemporary Visual Arts Network.
