About The Project

Correspondence is a new project that aims to nurture localised communities of contemporary artists, while bringing them together with practitioners from a different regional arts scene, in a spirit of collaboration and exchange.

Designed from the outset to be flexible and adaptable to the changing covid environment, this pilot ‘episode’ will see ten artists from the Letchworth arts community in Hertfordshire paired up with 10 artists from the Exeter area in Devon. With a focus on physical, rather than digital outcomes, and invoking the spirit of mail art and pen pal schemes, Correspondence will offer opportunities to meet (remotely), exchange ideas and collaborate with each other.

Artists will then be invited to participate in simultaneous exhibitions, hosted by Letchworth’s Broadway Gallery and Exeter Phoenix who will, in turn, promote the artists' works to their own extensive networks.
