A two week artistic residency located at the offices of the Belfast Telegraph and public open day at PSsquared Gallery.
Who owns the news? Whose news is it? How do our own personal stories fit with today’s media priorities? Together artists and young participants will look at the nature of today’s newspapers. With occasional interventions from the Telegraph’s own staff, they will tell stories, play games, experiment and make art in response to their surroundings. Sister of Another Mama are the current artists in residence at the Belfast Telegraph where they are working towards producing their own supplement to accompany the daily paper by working alongside journalists and groups of young people.
