> CRISIS is a programme of new media commissions and residencies at ISIS
> Arts. Launched in 2004, the pilot programme combined a series of
> production-based and discursive activities that brought together
> artists, curators and technical resource. CRISIS supported the process
> of artistic production and the engagement with ideas surrounding
> interdisciplinary collaboration and creative possibilities.
>
> The programme sought to increase the ways that artists engaged with
> the organisation in its new city centre premises, as previously, much
> of the programme was delivered away from base.
>
> CRISIS was centred around the process of production - the concepts
> and activities that take place between the spark of an idea and the
> finished art product. This complimented the other strands of ISIS'
> programming (new media training, mentoring, arts in education,
> residencies) and lack of exhibition space. Another integral aspect
> included peer to peer training and exchange between regional, national
> and international participants, as a way of sharing skills and
> facilitating new partnerships.
>
> The 12 month programme included 6 small commissions and short
> residencies, 2 two-month joint artist and curator residencies, 3
> evening networking events at ISIS and 2 presentation events hosted for
> visiting international artists. CRISIS was supported by the Arts
> Council England, North East and Newcastle City Council.
