Muf to fit-out boat for waterways arts residency

  • Comment

Muf is set to work on a floating arts venue for women’s arts organisation Idle Women

The scheme will tour the waterways between Lancashire and West Yorkshire until 2017.

The work is part of Idle Women’s first residency and the urban and landscape designer will be working with women’s refuge provider Humraaz.

Together they will design and build the interior and exterior spaces of the boat to reflect the work and living situation of each artist throughout the duration of their residency.

The converted narrowboat butty will act as a case for the idle women organisation and will host talks and events.

Liza Fior of Muf, said: ‘It is great to be working on a project where the invitation is so open and rich. The butty (with its precious cargo of artist-in-residence,) needs to be space saving on the inside but space consuming on the outside. We are working with Humraaz and the artists to think about how this quite constrained interior with its maximum of twelve visitors can open up and expand out to its mooring and beyond.’
