Synesthesia was an experimental project facilitating collaboration between curators/writers and artists showcasing the work of ten artists from across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The project investigated the ways we experience art remotely, using the power of words and conversations, not only in the context of a pandemic lockdown but also to address the challenges that often face artists outside of urban centres. It was a Cultivator Showcase, led by The Bridge team at the University of Plymouth, in partnership with Creative Kernow, funded by the European Structural & Investment Funds, Arts Council England, Cornwall Council and HM Government.
