HULL ARTIST RESEARCH INITIATIVE
HARI is a new experimental multidisciplinary arts venture. It is run as a not for profit organisation, with a meanwhile shopfront space, provided by Prospect Centre through Axisweb, to produce and to host activity in.
Our core areas of interest are research, experimentation and engagement, concerned with process and enquiry rather than finished product.
HARI wants to encourage artists to value and share their making processes and research phases through discussion, exhibition and events. Through these activities we aim to increase understanding by audiences of the rationale and richness of research behind finished artworks. We will support artists to do this by including both targeted groups and general publics in these processes.
HARI will also upskill local artists through opportunities to utilise the space and participate in talks and debate.
HARI thanks Hull City Council for funding this R&D phase.
