Golden Threads is a series of international artist fellowships organised by Delta Arts. Four peer-to-peer fellowships will take place in 2010, focusing on opportunities to experience models of education or social practice in the partner countries. The three-week visits will be closely programmed with an itinerary of meetings and short placements arranged with each artist in advance of the fellowships. After the artists return home, follow-up events will take place in all three countries. The project will be documented online and in a publication.

Golden Threads is supported by Arts Council England and the Danish Arts Council. With advisory partnership from engage and ARC.
