The Blue Monkey Network  Shared Space Residency for six artists was a new initiative for 2014, generously supported by Eastbourne College who contributed free use of their Casson Art School studio spaces for two weeks. The six Shared Space artists were able to put aside dedicated time to work alongside each other in the space to develop ideas and experiment with new work without the pressure of a pre-defined agenda or outcome. The two week residency ended with a celebratory open afternoon when the six artists displayed some of the work in progress.
