Pick of the Week 2015

August's Guest Editor: Sarah Chapman

Every month we invite a Guest Editor to select our Pick of the Week feature. Chosen from the activities listed in our events pages they select highlights from across the region.

This August we welcome Director of Peninsula Arts, Sarah Chapman.

Sarah Chapman is Director of Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University. She has a particular interest in cultural practice that draws on a range of disciplines including history, literature, contemporary art and the sciences. Her published research examines the benefits of a liberal arts education within the wider sphere of learning. She is also a practicing artist with a Doctorate that examines the intersection of painting and photography (2014). Recent projects include the internationally successful Moby-Dick Big Read (2013) and Dan and Lia Perjovschi: News After News / Knowledge Museum Kit and the associated publication ‘Behind the Line’ (2012). Sarah was a Director of Plymouth Visual Arts Consortium that helped bring the British Art Show 7 (BAS7) to Plymouth. Since then she has established a strong partnership network as part of Peninsula Arts and Visual Arts Plymouth, helping to provide a framework for new cultural projects and raising the profile of art and culture across the city and South West region.
