Installations & Explorations Throughout the day two emerging artists Charlie Ford and Ieva Kuminski took part in an open research workshop. Working on their own ideas, but together in one space, they used one another's methods and joint exploration for personal research.The process involved drawing, improvising, talking, making notes, devising tasks and following spontaneous paths. People witnessed them as they explored the space and other happenings; viewers watched their explorations, read their notes, moved away and came back to see the progress.

Classes & Workshops Renaud and his company delivered a professional level Cunningham based class. Participants took part in this increasingly popular technique taught by Leila McMillan, originally created by David Zambrano. At the beginning of 2010 Leila was one of 50 artists chosen to train for 50 days in Costa Rica with David in Flying Low and Passing Through techniques, thus certifying her to pass on her development of them. Since Costa Rica she has been developing her own voice through the techniques and teaching both techniques at a professional level in UK and Internationally.
