Artsadmin announces the 2019/20 BANNER artists
Artsadmin started BANNER in 2014 and has supported recent graduate artists to transition into the professional sphere through a holistic programme of ongoing dialogue and research gatherings, culminating in a showcase for a mixed audience of the public, artists, programmers and producers.
Since 2014 BANNER has supported five graduate artists/companies from MA Performance Making at Goldsmiths – Umama Hamido, Cori Williams, Teddy May de Kock, Elinor Lewis and Lorie Jo Trainor Buckingham and Ana Vicente – and four graduate artists/companies from BA Contemporary Performance Practice at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland – Nima Sené, Gudrun Soley Sigurdardottir, Thulani Rachia and Sharon Fraser.
Shereen Zoumot is a Jordanian feminist theatre-maker and facilitator who is pioneering the way for the queer community to have a supportive and expressive outlet in Jordan and the Arab region through arts.
Sinéad Hargan’s work is deeply rooted in the desire to understand the world through materials, the body and human interactions in various Scottish landscapes; reclaiming and re-conquering these spaces.
