In our increasingly online world it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd and be visible to audiences. Nick John Williams, a Middlesbrough-based sound designer and artist, has come up with a way to help artists cut through the noise with The Living Archive. Designed as an “elegant solution for small and medium-sized organisations who want to engage audiences online with their digital archives, media libraries and collections”, The Living Archive is an easy-to-use platform which can be used to connect with audiences, share digital content and create new channels of engagement.

Studio holders at Middlesbrough creative hub The Auxiliary have been working with the platform to create a unique digital exhibition of their creative practices and experiences. “Together we have reimagined the way in which projects may be documented online as we present sketches, notebooks, works-in-progress and experiments, alongside finished artworks to give the audience a greater understanding, not only of the artist and their work, but of the rigour, playfulness, virtuosity and seriousness from which great artworks emerge.” Nick John Williams explains. “The studio holders and artists in residence will continue to upload content throughout the duration of the exhibition, creating a living document of their art practices for audiences to explore.”

The Living Archive will go live on Monday 1st March and will run for the whole month
