Making It Happen - Contemporary Artists Working In Print

Making It Happen was a one day symposium hosted by De Montfort University Fine Art Department and Leicester Print Workshop with support from DMU Local and the Fine Art Practices Research Group. Different approaches to making and creating new art work were researched through interviews and panel discussions.

Four artists, Marcelle Hanselaar, Cedar Lewisohn, Nick Mobbs and Bronwen Sleigh were interviewed by artist/ curator Louise Clarke and LPW Artist in Residence Theo Miller. The event was compered by curator Hugo Worthy.

Designed for artists and arts audiences, Making It Happen presented four illustrated interviews, investigating the process of creating a new series of work from conceiving the idea through to making and presenting.

The interviews were followed by panel discussions involving the audience.
