    MNAN: Access Riders for Artists with Edi McGurk

    April 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


    Interdisciplinary artist Edi McGurk shares a beginner’s guide to Access Riders this month with Metal New Artist Network on Thursday 25 April. Come along to find out what an access rider is, gain top tips on how you might write your own and learn ways to invite and act on these from your own creative collaborators or participants.

    Edi’s talk will be followed by our regular Q&A session as well as informal networking – a chance to share what you’re up to in your own practice!

    About Edi
    Edi is an interdisciplinary artist based in Essex and, from time-to-time, East London. Due to chronic illness, most of the time they’re based in bed. After starting out as a photographer, they have developed their practice to centre access and spaciousness. This has meant working at a slower, more long-term pace focusing on process and engagement – incorporating textiles, print, writing, moving image and sound, and performance.

    Edi creates socially-engaged work that tends to explore experiences of community and marginalisation, memory and imagination – in particular they focus a lot on care, queerness, gender and cripness. They think a lot about time, the internet, the ways we can show up for each other, and the role artists play in building a better world.
