Staff Profile: Sarah Bowden
I am a collaborative curator and independent arts producer with particular interests in experimental artistic practices and generative processes of engagement with art and ideas.
I am the curator of Hardwick Gallery and coordinator of its public programme of exhibitions and events, talks and discussions, artist residencies and research projects, which are selected in collaboration with undergraduate and post-graduate students in the School of Art & Design. In 2007 I founded MEANTIME Project-Space in Cheltenham, which I directed until 2014. MEANTIME was a unique resource in the region, with a programme of artists' residencies and projects, and live events, that provided a platform for experimentation and engagement in contemporary artistic practices.
