The Mothership – artists residencies, unincorporated collaborations

unincorporated collaborations have launched a new artist’s residency program – The Mothership – in Dorset, from March 2016. This opportunity is for contemporary artists working in any media seeking the qualities of a secluded retreat and potential collaboration. We want to explore the following themes – climate / weather, rural social and political issues, land / agriculture. Artists are invited to work independently on a project of their own choice. Work will be selected on the basis of current practice and there are no expectations of a presentation, although this can be arranged.

The Football Manager Guide to Football Management

“Football Manager is an institution of a game because people who wouldn’t consider themselves gamers in the least, who wouldn’t know their Halo from their Happy Days – play it, and give it the serious hours. It’s a clever game, a labour of love without question, and has probably played a serious role in the way we many of us who have played it over the years think about football now.”
