Ruth Catlow and myself, are interested in finding out more regarding the
12 Day Residency program at Access Space, which was publicised on the
Netbehaviour mailing list last week.
We have a few ideas on what we can both propose for the residency but
need to know a little bit more of the context and what more is required
before we apply.
Thank you for your time.
