Wild Letter Launch
Tuesday 23 March 2021, 6-7pm
Join the Into The Wild 2020 cohort to launch their collaborative postal publication, Wild Letter. These letters began as a tangible way for the group to stay connected, share ideas and reflect on what they’ve learnt together over the last year.
The Wild Letter has travelled the length of the UK: Bristol – Leeds – Manchester – London – Sheffield & The Hebrides – as each of artist has responded and posted it onto the next, keeping fingers crossed that it would get there in one piece.
Everyone that attends will be sent a free black and white “print your own” version of the publication with instructions so you can print and bind your own copies at home! Register via eventbrite.

We are holding another hackathon! Help us add more info and insights to the ever growing beautiful resource that is Mesh! All welcome, instructions will be given on how to contribute, check it out. Reaching out and sharing what we've got feels key right now!

Help us populate our new wiki as part of Antiuniversity Now Festival 2020 .
In this Wiki-Hackathon, we invite everyone to contribute to the new wiki for emerging artists (Mesh), for an intensive couple of hours over Zoom. It will be a fun opportunity to meet new people and learn some skills (like a hacker marathon) while gathering and sharing the wealth of knowledge we have. It’s open to all, with no previous experience necessary - don’t worry, you’ll be surprised by what you already know! This is a casual event where you can be as active as you wish, and join or leave at any time. Bring some snacks, something to drink and get comfortable. We encourage any questions or conversations that might come up.
Mesh Wiki Q&A and Feedback Event
Monday 18 May 2020, 6-7pm
Join us on Monday to find out more about ‘Mesh: A Sharing Hub for Emerging Artists’, and to share your thoughts and feedback on this new wiki site.
Into the Wild Artist Interpreter Esther McManus has been working with this year’s Into the Wild cohort to develop a wiki site to support emerging artists.
If you’d like to learn more about the wiki and how to get involved, we are hosting an online Q&A and open feedback and discussion event, where we will also invite you to share your experience of testing out the wiki.
LADA Sharing Session
In September 2019 the Wildies spent a day at Live Art Development Agency's study room, drawing on their resources to create a performative response to the Into the Wild programme, and the experience of being a recently graduated emerging artist in this context. This was presented in a sharing session with LADA and Chisenhale Studios staff, which was also documented by Alberto Balazs to create a short film, which you can see here.
Pooled: Into the Wild 2019
Opening: Thursday 17 October, 6-9pm
Exhibition Continues: 18-20 October, 12-6pm
Pooled: Into the Wild 2019 is a group exhibition concluding this year’s ‘Into the Wild’ programme. Including works by the 14 participant artists, the exhibition showcases film, sculpture, painting, and live performance as the culmination of the year-long artist development programme.
The show will take place alongside ‘P2P Art: A Commonscentric Exhibition’, developed by ‘Into the Wild’ as part of Art Licks 2019.
P2P Art: A Commoncentric Exhibition
Opening: Thursday 17 October 2019, 6-9pm
Exhibition Continues: 18-20 October 2019, 12-6pm
As part of Art Licks Weekend, Into the Wild 2019 present an exploration of peer to peer (P2P) as a mode of art production, governance and property. P2P is a type of social relation, where members have maximum freedom to connect, as well as a technological infrastructure, which makes possible the scaling up of such relations. This enables a new mode of production, where shared cultural value is produced through open contributory systems (e.g. Wikipedia).
Visit the Chisenhale Studios website for more information.
Art P2P: Towards a Commoning of Artistic Expression: Open dialogue
Sunday 20 October 2019, 3-4.30pm
A public conversation between participant artists/curators reflecting on P2P as a model for art production and management.
What is peer to peer? How does it operate in the context of art? What happens when all members of a context-specific cooperative have equal governing authority in how the works are produced, exhibited, owned, and distributed?
Devised in response to some key aspects in the book Peer to Peer: The Commons Manifesto by Michel Bauwens, Vasilis Kostakis and Alex Pazaitis published on March 2019. Download the book here.
All welcome, no booking required.
