MSB2015 is a three-part residency exchange between members of CG Associates (Manchester), Bloc Projects (Sheffield) and Extra Special People (BIrmingham). It focuses on providing opportunities for making work in quick, experimental contexts, developing conversations with other practitioners and opening opportunities for collaboration. The series of residencies is designed to develop the practices of the participating artists by providing them with critical input and opportunities to experiment, collaborate, develop their networks nationally, make new work and exhibit.

MSB2015 follows the 2014 project C PAGES which was an exchange between members of CG Associates and Extra Special People, hosted by TOAST WILL HOST in Manchester and Stryx in Birmingham. C PAGES was facilitated by Jane Lawson and Kathryn Miller.
