Cove Park’s Associates Programme is a membership programme for our former residents. It offers new opportunities, events, and residency exchanges on an annual basis for those wishing to continue to work at and with Cove Park. From an open call application process, the inaugural Associates in Collaboration residency has been awarded to former resident and Associate Hope Strickland and collaborator Ana Edwards.

Hope Strickland is an artist-filmmaker and researcher from Manchester, UK. Her current practice is concerned with maroon ecologies: landscapes and timezones, navigation practices and modes of living that evade and confront plantation logics. Hope works across 16mm, digital and archival formats as a way of playing with temporal fractures and intimacies. Their work has been screened internationally at festivals including the New York Film Festival, the BFI London Film Festival and Ann Arbor Film Festival. 

Ana Edwards is an artist and filmmaker from Chile. Her work combines aspects of ethnography, perception, and poetry to explore interrelations between beings and environments. She is interested in film and ecology as systems of interconnected elements subject to influence each other.  Her non-fiction films have been shown internationally in documentary, artistic, and ethnographic festivals and museums including IDFA, CPH:DOX, MACBA, Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino.  She is currently doing a two-year program at Le Fresnoy Studio National des Arts Contemporains in France.
