ISIS runs labs to support regional artists in their practice. The content for these labs is dictated through our programme and responds directly to the needs of our artists. The labs are designed to share knowledge and expertise and cater for up to 30 people each time. Specialist international contributors are invited to broaden the UK experience, and the findings or results are distributed.
