Blind Ditch are a Devon based artist collective who bring together varied voices from the communities they work with to create digital arts and performance events in everyday spaces. Their award winning VANLAND project toured a multi-screen converted caravan with young peoples films to village fetes in Devon and Ireland, they’ve exhibited supersize storyboards on train station platforms, screened artist films in pubs and bars across rural Teignbridge, performed over the internet from peoples homes across the world, and toured a mobile table tennis table around unused and unloved parts of 6 British cities.
Blind Ditch members are: Paula Crutchlow, John Levack Drever, Volkhardt Müller and Cat Radford. Find out more about our work at www.blindditch.org
