The Role of Visual Arts in the Creation of Social Space: How artists, art organisations and communities collaborate is a research partnership between Glyndwr University and Pawb, which translates as Everyone’s Home, is a cultural community resource, bringing together Wrexhams arts and markets within the same footprint

Looking at creative resilience within arts organisations, Tracy aims to draw parallels between curation, audience development, community and sense of place derived from co-development and collaboration around issues of programming visual arts in arts and non-arts spaces. During her three year study Tracy will spend time teaching on the MA Art & Design programme at Glyndwr University in addition to working with the creative team at Pawb on issues ranging from creative resilience and the role of useful art in arts programming.
