I’ve found my passport, bought my tickets and arranged a cat-sitter. Only a matter of days now till I leave for Budapest for a month long residency at AQB. Much of my time will be spent at Lucaks Baths (pictured) creating sound and moving image works. I also hope to talk Tamas Loky (Director AQB) into joining me on a tour of geothermal sites across the country. Tamas is busy organising workshops for me to run at the Anderson Art Lab, and I will be keen to find out what staff and students are up to at the various art schools across the city, as well as meeting artists and all sorts of people engaged in the creative industries.
This exciting venture will see me working alongside pupils and staff to develop digital storytelling skills on the theme of climate change.

This is Theaster telling you more
