Mollie Balshaw

Title: In-person Speaker and Guest Panelist

Mollie Balshaw is a queer visual artist and producer based in the North West. They create paintings in the expanded field, which is a fancy way of saying they make paintings using non-traditional materials and methods; like chucking a disco ball in a bucket of emulsion or making a portrait with a plastic garden chair.

They are co-director of arts organisation Short Supply, member of a-n The Artist Information Company’s Artists Council, member of Manchester City Council’s Cultural Consortium and trustee of Islington Mill Foundation in Salford. They understand the challenges artists from queer and lower socio economic backgrounds face and network artists to advocate for each other, as well as maintaining their own practice.
