On the Thursday we met up with Anna, who lives in Amsterdam, and so she knew about good places for us to go. She was going to come with us to Eye Film Institute, but when we got there it was closed due to a private event. Anna instead took us all to an old warehouse space where they used to make boats and the space then became unused, and so they made it into a space for artists studios. I thought that this was a great idea to use the space and also something which would be very interesting to see. I had hoped to try to speak to some of the artists there, but there were not many of them there, and the ones that I did see looked like they were hard at work and so I didn’t want to disturb them.
This would be great if we could have somewhere like this in the university or even in any space that is vacant, because it would definitely be well used by people like myself, and probably also professional artists. As well as having somewhere to work, it would be a great opportunity to learn from each other and gain ideas, connections and experience in the field.
