This project aims to transform a canal boat into a residential space for emerging and professional artists to create work around the idea of ‘journey.’ The boat will be based in Wales and each residency will travel along the canal network to a different city in England. The artist on board would have a show/open studio event at their destination. The boat will then pick up another artist to do the journey back into Wales. This project is being supported by the group-mentoring scheme at g39. Artist Ellie Young is co-administrator for the Boat Project.
At present I am at the initial stage of gathering information, training and research and hope to run the project in the summer 2014/15
