Jordan Chisholm – Curatorial Team Member
To make art, I believe we must at first listen. My practice, both wilfully interdisciplinary and entirely undisciplined, stems from both an interest in care and a performance art background. It recruits from community engagement, having conversations, performing, collaboration with other humans and inanimate objects, movement and listening. My creative practice is deeply rooted in having conversations – I believee human connection is a vital contribution to the well-being of our individual self.
I love Dumfries. It saddens me that not everyone feels the same about the place I call home. I have made it my artistic mission to do something about this. Committed to community arts practice and particularly interested in the therapeutic role of creativity; my ongoing work resides in community development. I am determined that if we all take a little more time to care for each other and the place in which we live, we will begin to feel much more connected to each other, contributing to better mental health.
