Brighter Sound, in collaboration with the Museum of Science and Industry, are excited to announce that the incredible Anna Meredith will be leading their next Artistic Directors Series alongside guitarist and composer Jack Ross and visual artist Eleanor Meredith.
Anna will lead a four day residency from 18th – 21th July for young and emerging female musicians and multidisciplinary artists to collaborate and create new work inspired by the Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry. Produced as part of the programme for the Science in the City Festival, and in wider celebration of Manchester as the European City of Science 2016, the work will be premiered at the museum’s Science in The City Late event on Wednesday 27th July.
“I’m so excited to be leading Brighter Sound’s summer residency in partnership with the Museum of Science and Industry – this fascinating museum is going to be a brilliant starting point for new musical and visual work and I can’t wait to see what we all come up with! I’ll be bringing in my longterm collaborators, workshopleader and guitarist Jack Ross and my sister, visual artist Eleanor Meredith, with whom I’ve worked on several successful cross media projects over the years. We’re all passionate about supporting young female creators, and collaborating on new work in such an inspiring setting will be a great place to work together, exploring both collaborative large group pieces and giving space to develop individual ideas.” – Anna Meredith
