creative conversations 3

23 Oct

I conclude the conversation I had with Julie Penfold at PVA mediaLab. We briefly discuss the shock of PVA losing their Arts Council funding and that they are fundamental to future developments that involve PVA after their Arts Council funding finishes in March 2012.

I ask what motivates Julie to keep surviving after all these years. We talk about the lack of capabilities in gallery spaces to show new digital artworks, even down to simply moving image work. And also the difficulty of showing community engaged processes in a gallery space, in a different space, of how to adapt, re-make work in a way to suit a different audience, a different space. Julie illustrates her answers with highlighting some of PVAs previous work and touches on a few of the archival works that sit in PVA library.

We briefly talk about community engagement and how important the role that an an equal relationship exists between all partners and has some sustainability built in. How in her experience the best initiatives have been when artists have self-started these, they are not coming with any organisation behind them (a lot like this project I might hasten to add). But how do they pay the bills is, as always, the crucial question!

I hope you will find this new show on art, culture and the economics of being an artist in Dorset interesting and engaging. I welcome your input to future episodes.
