Frances Bossom in response to Emma Cocker ‘Give and take: the possibility & problematic of transcultural exchange’ in Engage 13: Globalisation (Summer 2003):

My PhD explores the history and future of gallery education and focuses on Arnolfini’s recently accessioned Education Archives. In the article I’ve chosen from 2003, Emma Cocker describes Site Gallery’s participation in the FAME project.

This transnational project was designed to exchange gallery education practice involving digital technology, between European partners. Gallery Educators have always formed networks; Arnolfini’s archives contain material evidencing this from the 70s, 80s and 90s.

Emma’s article reminds us that forming networks isn’t always easy and offers her reflections on some of the challenges, potential and value of sharing practice across borders with digital technology. This prompts me to look forward and imagine how we might form and sustain our future networks.
