    PaR PROJECT: 12◦ North: Visual Literacy and the Emerging Artist (2014+)Jaundrill-Scott, Karen and Newall, HelenThe 12◦ North Company initiative served to support the cultural economy in the Northern Powerhouse by incubating early career practitioners whose contribution would be critical in the sustainability of the regional dance ecology. The works builds upon Jaundrill-Scott’s previous ACE consultancy, ‘Towards a Graduate Company’ (Jaundrill-Scott, Karen and Cullen, Lisa (2009), EHRA: 5052).The project has four phases of dissemination which developed as the work progressed, and consists of work with still imagery and documentary reflection: Newall produced the photographs which constitute the exhibition of still images, Class; Rehearse; Perform, out of which comes Newall’s discourse on dance performance imagery, and which informed the narrative of Jaundrill-Scott’s first film Do You See What I See?, concerning the deployment of still imagery as a tool for promoting increased dancer self-awareness as an emerging artist. Jaundrill-Scott then produced a second film, Disco(urse), which followed up the artist 12 months on from the first film, and concerned self-reflection on professional artistry when placed in a familiar landscape.The project (photography and/or films) is accompanied by written reflections upon Visual Literacy in two brochures.Phase 1 (Oct 2014 – March 2015)Exhibition of photography and film (Brochure 1)• Class; Rehearse; Perform• Do you see what I see?
