Metal Liverpool to host Connect/Exchange, a national residency developed by Northern Film & Media

Metal is delighted to announce that they’re a host partner of Connect/Exchange – a national UK residency scheme for artists with a screen-based practice developed by Northern Film & Media.

Connect/Exchange supports artists with the initial research & development of a new project via a two-part residency, together with associated professional networking and events.

Metal Liverpool will support two artists who are pushing the boundaries of moving image, developing new, inspirational and challenging art.

Sabina Sallis to create a partly factual partly fictional video work about a secretive poetic eco-terrorist society based in Liverpool. Their political actions include activities such as guerilla gardening, seed bombing, ephemeral land-art and also surreal, Dadaist activities that will be invented collaboratively as the project unfolds.

Kelvin Brown intends to explore the possibilities of using speech within a musical framework, and the collective social and emotional responses to current geo-political events. He is interested in engaging with both the opinions of individuals, and the challenges the community in Liverpool faces in navigating its place within the current social and political climate.
