Kim Beveridge graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2005, with a first class BA Honours in ‘Time Based Art’. Since then, she has been living in North Lanarkshire and working as a digital artist, filmmaker, AV designer for live performances, and part-time lecturer.
For Art Is Everywhere, Kim created and filmed a series of dance performance pieces in collaboration with New College Lanarkshire Performing Arts students Mikah Edwards, Jodie Logsdail, Olivia Brew and Emma Mitchell.
Inspired by the online communities found on social medial platforms, the piece explores themes of self-exploration, class and place, with dance taking a central role as an early form of self-expression for young people. Emerging from the creative process were questions young creative people must consider about their future; whether to stay in North Lanarkshire or to leave.
