Strange Cargo assemble bespoke creative teams for each project, each artist bringing specific skills and experience from a diverse range of backgrounds and artforms.
These multi-skilled teams are the best way we've found of generating the conditions that artists need to develop innovative working practices. As the teams work together the artists informally pick up valuable experience and new skills.
Often, in their own practice, artists work in isolation from each other and their community. Working for Strange Cargo offers an opportunity to work as part of a team for a period of time and to contribute to, and connect with, the wider community as well as creating something that they may never have imagined they would ever do.
