We are looking for people to apply to At The End of The Day — a creative workshop led by Patrick Waterhouse and Tim Wan with the support of Mauro Bedoni, that explores, challenges and questions the ideas about what it means to be English today in the Midlands. Participants can be from Derby, England, or anywhere in the world, from any creative backgrounds and interests.

The workshop will explore questions like:
— How do you create an inclusive idea of Englishness?
— What are the stories we tell?
— How does regional identity relate to the nation?
— How does ethnicity and heritage affect attitudes?
— What is English identity today?

This will be a research focused collaborative workshop, with a hands-on process that enables us to produce fully realised outcomes, which includes a publication and an exhibition at the QUAD gallery that will open on the 10th February to 11th March 2018.


Patrick Waterhouse (b. 1981) is an artist whose work spans photography, drawing, slow journalism, graphic design, sculpture and many other disciplines. His practice involves in-depth research, often working in communities. (

Tim Wan (b. 1988) is a graphic designer & art director from London, who works within the field of art direction, book design, editorial, identity and printed matter with a focus in typographic design outputs. (

Mauro Bedoni (b. 1979) is the current Programme Manager of QUAD (Derby). His professional background is in editorial photography and has worked as photo editor for publications such as COLORS magazine (ITA) and TIME magazine (USA).


We are seeking people of all backgrounds, ethnicities and interests, working across the fields of writing, photography, video, illustration, visual communication and art & design to apply as workshop participants.

The selected participants will take part actively in the workshop week at the end of November. They will be working on researching, developing and conceptualising the exhibition and publication, liaising with contributors as well as working on self-assigned proposals.
