As part of Bricks Artist Programme we are commissioning a series of podcasts, in each episode a different artist takes the lead exploring a subject of their choice bringing in contributors from within and without the creative realm.
A new episode is coming out every two weeks until mid January.
Each episode is produced by Rowan Bishop with Bricks.
Through a partnership with BCfm special five minute edits are broadcast on the Monday One Love Breakfast show and Saturday Edition.
We are also publishing two blog post for each episode, one with a transcription of the podcast so the content is accessible to D/deaf community members and one curated by the artist with added content and links to things mentioned in the episode.
We will be producing podcasts in connection to our other projects including public art and St Annes in the new year.
Each podcast has a blog page where the lead artist has compiled additional content around the themes of the episode, check them out here:
We have transcribed the podcasts so that they are accessible to D/deaf audiences. Check them out here:
