Pritam Singh's final report (Word)

In selecting the 2013 Fellows the trustees chose Birmingham artists whose talents they wanted to see develop and whose proposals would expose the artist to a significant new and external influence or expertise. In neither case would the project be possible without the Feeney Trust's support, and both promise to have a positive impact on the artist’s future work in Birmingham.

Elizabeth explained:

"The Feeney Fellowship will give me the opportunity to explore a new printmaking process called photo etching. This will enable me to produce a series of large billboard-style prints that will be exhibited at a Metro station in Lyon, one of Birmingham's twinned cities. It is envisaged that the connections made through the project will open up networks between creative communities in Birmingham and Lyon."

Pritam added:

"The Feeney Fellowship will allow me to develop my career by working alongside Jazz musicians; learning, creating and composing new hybrid music through blending Indian Ragas/rhythms with the vibrant sound and razzmatazz of a Jazz orchestra. My educational workshops will inspire musicians and students in schools to adapt a cross-cultural and diverse approach to music, and I hope that with the Feeney Fellowship I can further develop my career as a composer."
