2002 - 2009
Our Small Wonders professional development scheme offered artists the mentoring support and technical resources needed for making film and video work.
Since Small Wonders was set up in 2002 the scheme helped artists to raise funding, use new moving image technology, work with film crews, create new film works, publish DVDs, host events, develop and realise exhibitions, take part in curated exhibitions and publicise and promote their practice.
Small Wonders works have been shown at venues including Picture This, Bristol; The V&A, London, R O O M, Bristol; The Lowry, Salford; Arnolfini, Bristol; Gasworks, London; BRLSI, Bath; Chapter, Cardiff.
