Arts and Culture Fellows 2019Project research
The University of Exeter’s Arts and Culture
strategy aims to “place creativity at the heart of all we think, imagine and do
As an important part of putting our ambitions into practice, we have commissioned three creative practitioners to undertake Arts and Culture Fellowships in which they are engaging with innovative research across the University’s colleges and campuses, between April and July 2019.
The Fellowships address the three aims of the Arts and Culture strategy: to develop purposeful encounters; enrich our cultural environment; and unlock resources and potential. They will have an emphasis on process, documentation and evaluation, working closely with the Arts and Culture team to disseminate their insights and findings with a broad audience, both across the University and the region and beyond.
The Fellows are making connections with key contacts working on a specific area of research and are working alongside these research communities, producing creative outputs that investigate, interrogate and explore the processes and practices of research undertaken at Exeter, using creative skills and supporting the aims of the University.
The three Arts and Culture Fellows for 2019 are:
- Bram Thomas Arnold, an artist who started with walking and kept going, into performance; installation; drawing; academia; broadcasting and writing. Bram’s Fellowship is being hosted by the Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) in Penryn.
- Judy Brown, a poet, poetry tutor /mentor, and poetry reviewer. She has been Poet-in-Residence at both the Wordsworth Trust, Grasmere and Gladstone's Library, and was a 2017 Hawthornden Fellow. Judy’s Fellowship is being hosted by the Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, Exeter.
- Leo Jamelli, an artist,illustrator and animator based in Exeter who works with a wide range of media from traditional hand drawn illustration to contemporary 2D and 3D digital animation. Leo’s Fellowship is being hosted by the Centre for Human-Animal-Environment Bioarchaeology (HumAnE).
