Pick of the Week 2017

January's Guest Editor: Letty Clarke

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 January, Letty Clarke, Programme Assistant for Learning and Participation at Arnolfini, is making the selection.


Letty Clarke is three weeks into her new job as Programme Assistant for Learning and Participation at Arnolfini. All her stuff is still in boxes at her parents' house. She’s just lodging with a mate at the moment while she gets her head around all this new information. This year she’s excited to be working with Young Arnolfini, a collective of young artists and writers aged 16-21 who are working, learning and living in Bristol. If you’re interested in becoming a member of Young Arnolfini let’s go for a coffee.

Letty is a core member of Stair/Slide/Space, along with Abigail Gilchrist and Jo Willoughby. Stair/Slide/Space is a collective of artists based in Portsmouth who explore individual and collaborative ways of working, often conducting experimental visual conversations and supporting critical discussion. Previous to working at Arnolfini, Letty was the Studio Coordinator for Art Space Portsmouth, while working as a freelance artist on projects such as The Futurators at Aspex.
