Annis Joslin has worked with Project Artworks as lead artist since 2003. She is an artist and filmmaker working for over 20 years in social and collaborative contexts creating work with and about people’s lived experience through a reflective and participatory process, encouraging dialogue and freedom to play. She uses different approaches to generate material, including drawing, animation, photography, performance and story-telling to create lens-based digital artworks that can operate on different platforms, such as galleries, museums, online and in community contexts and situations. She believes that the arts have the potential to transform and support, having worked closely with people at very difficult points in their lives, including teenage mothers, survivors of domestic abuse, young people with acute mental health challenges, trafficked women and young male offenders.
She has a strong track record and experience through projects, residencies and commissions with arts, educational and heritage organisations including People United, The National Trust, Photoworks, Towner Gallery, English Heriatge, Fabrica Gallery, The British Museum, The Women’s Library, Glyndebourne, Brighton Museum, Culture Shift, The De La Warr Pavilion, Sussex Partnership NHS Trust, The Royal College of Physicians and The Barbican.
She has collaborated with artist Sarah Cole since 2017, find our more about their collaboration here.
Annis is also co-director of Corridor, a social arts organisation based in the South East that connects artists, people and places through collaborative lens-based visual arts projects.
