OHOS artists had fun in Tate Modern on 27 January 2018 delivering a presentation in Tate Exchange as part of the Reading International Summit. https://readinginternational.org/programme/tate-exchange/
The aim was to present information about OHOS's public activity programme and future plans, but also to raise awareness of the costs and anxieties to small groups of balancing art practice with arts admin and sustaining public artspace - all while trying not to fall off the career ladder as individual artists.
Many thanks to Susanne Clausen and Reading International for organising the event, to Tate Modern for hosting the event, and to Sarah Hacker and Reading Borough Council for additional support.
