Aarhus Center for Visual Art collaborates with global partners to create opportunities for local artists to expand their international network.
British photographer Laura Dicken was awarded a bursary from New Art West Midlands and Grain Photography Hub to develop her project, You Are Another Me, with participants in Aarhus. You Are Another Me is a socially engaged arts project that explores the experiences of women from a variety of backgrounds who have, for different reasons, migrated alone. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic Laura is now fulfilling her bursary remotely and is looking to connect digitally with potential participants who are currently based in Aarhus via tools such as Zoom, Skype, email and WhatsApp. Laura will collaborate with participants to make moving image digital portraits which will include voice, sound and images.
Laura Dicken is an award winning visual artist whose practice is based upon the foundations of photography, moving image and visual storytelling. Her ongoing body of work is a series of socially engaged projects which are collaborations with individuals, groups, communities and arts organisations. Through her work Laura hopes to create opportunities for previously untold stories to be shared authentically and with agency.
