Jo Hodges worked as Lead Artist developing work with young people responding to the historic properties and their contents at Broughton House, Kirkudbright and Threave House, Castle Douglas. Both projects led to long term exhibitions at the properties.
CREATE Scotland with National Trust for Scotland
Jo worked with art students from Kirkudbright Academy to make site specific tunnel cards (these type of cards were popular at the time that the house was occupied) that reinterpreted the house and gardens. The cards were displayed throughout the property and were extremely popular with visitors.
At Threave, Jo worked with a group of young people to respond to the house and contents. They made a series of site specific interactive flick books that were installed throughout the house. The group also made stop frame animations using the contents of the house as inspiration.
