Mobilisation

Creative archives can mobilise the old into the new. Ideas can be recycled and new projects re-emerge from the remnants of older work.

  • How have materials from the archive re-emerged into new creative practices?
  • How might the archive material influence future creative practice?
  • Can the archive mobilise your own practice?
