We The North residency was programmed and ran by Philippa Hulse. The project was designed to platform and exhibit undergraduate artists in the North. For this Philippa performed studio visits at many universities and invited her chosen artists to The Royal Standard to exhibit in her space. By offering up a space outside of their institutions, Philippa allowed these artists to travel to a new city and begin to create networks that they will be able to use once graduated.
