I was accepted to the .EKWC as a 'young participant'. These roles are reserved for an artist recently graduated as opposed to the project participants who have generally 5 or more years experience. Amongst the group I am part of it has become crystal clear to me just how much I am at the very beginning. I often feel inadequate while seeing others presentations and hearing all the projects and exhibitions they have been part of. This has brought me to the realisation that a lot of development both artistically and technically is needed on my part and I am feeling motivated by this challenge. Having the ability to see how experienced artists seriously work, run their projects and sustain long artistic careers has been an invaluable learning experience and it is for these (and many more) reasons that being allowed a position at an institute like the .EKWC at this early stage in a career is so significant.
