World Beach Project hits the 1000 mark! Fantastic! I feel so proud. (I’m never quite sure why pride is considered to be such a sin… just bubbling up, unbidden, as it does.) I think I can safely say it is shared by everyone at the V&A who is involved in the project and I hope equally by all who have taken part to date. Let us celebrate a truly collective pride in the achievement built together… and in an idea which continues to grow and develop. Number 1000 made by four year 3 pupils from St Mary’s CEVA Primary School, Woodbridge. In the context of the last and future postings it is fitting that the thousandth published entry is made by young school children who chose to take part in the project on their day out at Thorpeness Beach. As an artist, I’m used to taking and having control. World Beach is completely out of my hands… it will be what it will be… it has its own momentum. It belongs to all. Thank you for making it such a vibrant, exciting, expanding exhibition. Thank you for your creativity.

With an exciting and ever-changing programme of artists and designers, there’s never a dull moment in our residency studios. We will give you an exclusive look into what it’s like to be in residence at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.
We have a thriving and exciting programme of artists in residence here at the Museum, with at least two practitioners inhabiting our studios at any given time.
Here we show the process of being an artist or designer in residence here at the V&A, with behind-the-scenes insights and stories from Residency Co-ordinator, Laura Southall, and the artists themselves.
