Artist In Residence

Scottish environmental and digital artist Jamie Wardrop will be the new Artist in Residence with The Refractive Collective in 2024/25.

Jamie will be based within the Refractive Collective at the Witherspoon Building, Storie Street, Paisley. There he will establish an open studio where he will examine different methods of visual creation.

With an eye on the roots of the town and keen awareness of the need for radical imagination, he will use the opportunity to breach the question of how we face up to the rapid changes in environment brought on by climate breakdown.

Renfrewshire Film and Digital artists will be able to work with Jamie through various workshops and exploration sessions to develop an innovative projection mapping and sound experience exhibition planned for Paisley town centre in March 2025.
