Fellow Chris Avis's work selected for arts festival

Chris Avis, who was awarded an Arts and Older People Fellowship in 2013, has been invited to exhibit her work in Germany.

The Schlachten annual International Contemporary Arts Festival explores the theme of conflict, on all levels, each year from a new perspective. This year's theme is displacement. 

As an older artist herself, Chris has been exploring elements of the ageing process for several years. During her Fellowship she spent six weeks researching the attitudes of the arts communities towards older artists in Berlin, Copenhagen and Amsterdam.

The Schlachten Festival features the work of over many internationally aclaimed artists and musicians, and will run from 13th June to 12th July.
