Social Practice Social: School for Invisible Urbanists, 6pm, 1st Dec
Social Practice Social is a monthly discussion forum for artists, programmers, community organisers, activists, and others working with participation, collaboration, public space, or social change. This month we are joined by Kate Houlton, Children & Young People’s Producer at Heart of Glass and artist Andy Field, who has been working with them to develop The School for Invisible Urbanists. Kate will tell us more about Heart of Glass’ approach and their philosophy that ‘art belongs everywhere, to everyone’. Andy will share ‘The School for Invisible Urbanists’ project; that takes the form of a secret society of young people who began to consider the changes they’d like to see in the world around them, and what they can do to initiate that change. This event will take place online via Zoom. Please register here to receive the meeting information – https://bit.ly/3lhNIRX
Artists’ Talk – Kelly O’Brien & Thomas Wynne – 5pm, 2nd Dec
Artcore invites you to join us for an in-conversation event with resident artists Kelly O’Brien and Thomas Wynne and Artcore’s Programme Producer David Gilbert. Kelly and Tom were selected for the current residency at Artcore and started researching and making work at the beginning of October. They are developing work for exhibition – launching online in December and in Artcore Gallery early in the New Year. Through the residency, we wanted to give these two artists the opportunity to make new work dealing with the tensions caused by the current uncertainty and looking forward to a brighter future. Both artists are interested in alternative realities and fictional possibilities.
