Our practice of paying attention to local environments has led to several invitations to work in residence - from shopping centres to heritage sites, bee gardens, health centres and art galleries.


Working alongside local communities, science and health experts we use these opportunities to help connect people to their locality.


Currently in Residence

Exeter Custom House

Honeyscribe has been invited by Exeter Canal & Quay Trust to curate and present a pilot programme of arts and heritage interventions in 2021/22 that resonate with the Exeter Custom House and its locality, situated on the historic quayside and canal basin.

Responding to its rich heritage as cultural gateway to the city and a place of exchange of languages, cultures and trade, the pilot will reanimate Exeter Custom House as a site for creative making and cultural exchange through artistic collaborations, exhibitions and participatory activity.

The programme will explore the contemporary resonances of the Custom House's vantage point on the quay as witness to rising sea levels and the ebb and flow of people to and from the city, and will use artistic practice to raise environmental awareness of the local habitat.

Coming up: 
an exhibition of work by Devon-based artist Marcus Vergette

28 August - 26 September 2021
