Sunderland 10 x 10 Artist in Residence at Hilton Garden Inn and SAFC

In May, I was one of the artists selected for the Sunderland 10 x 10 residency programme, which paired ten artists with ten local businesses. I worked with Sunderland Association Football Club and the staff of the newly-opened Hilton Garden Inn to make a collaborative artwork for the hotel. This process was intended to give the staff a sense of ownership and engagement. I established an informal focus group with several of the hotel's front of house staff, as well as marketing staff from SAFC.
