About THREADS and the MICRORESIDNECY PROJECT

Nomadic artist-led gallery, Threads, have teamed up with six partners across East Kent to increase recognition of artist-led activity in the region.

Having delivered over thirty visual art critiques across Kent, Threads have identified and want to address the untapped opportunity for development that exists in peer-to-peer critiques and residencies. To do so, Threads have curated a nine-month programme, bringing together cultural ambassadors to strengthen the connections for arts organisations across the region, highlighting East Kent a must-visit destination for contemporary art.
