We hope that you will join us to celebrate the studios 13-year-long tenure in the building! For this gathering we have a medley of events lined up; from a roundtable with local artist-leds, a talk looking at the history of the site and the story of the OTS building to a publication fair and a family friendly activity.

During Late Harvest we celebrate the events, relationships and projects that may not have taken form without OTS as a host. We will take a moment to reflect together on the building itself – as a body that has sustained us – while its future is increasingly uncertain. Through this event we hope that we can initiate a future vision where the OTS community may inhabit new spaces, harnessing the potential of this change to sow the seed of new relationships.

Late Harvest is co-produced with Effy Harle, and features the design work of Saria Digregorio.

Programme Notes

Alternative Well Dressing
Try your hands at some faux folk frolics! For this family friendly activity we have adapted the Derbyshire tradition of well dressing. Come and create vibrant patterns using autumn blooms to adorn the OTS yard bar for the party in the evening.

Site history and story of the OTS building
Join artist Kathryn Cooper to learn about the area and the OTS building, which over its hundred year history has hosted several of Nottingham’s iconic industries. Initially playing a part in the city’s textile production, it later became part of the Boots Island Site before being converted to artist studios in 2008.

Turning the Soil
Roundtable discussion with local artist-leds, facilitated by Sean Cummins, Effy Harle & Sophie Mackfall. Participating guests include members of Chaos Magic, DARP, Four/Four, Gasleak Mountain, Kühle Wampe and Mansions of the Future.

Artist-led initiatives have long been part of the fibre of OTS. Following this tradition, in Turning the soil we will reflect on the dynamic ways cultural institutions, however big or small, have to shapeshift and adapt while navigating the changing nature of our cities. Hibernating, resetting, even dissolving are part of cultural composting. Turning the soil will give all of us a moment to take stock and to jumpstart the conversation about our shared future in Nottingham and beyond.
to sow the seed of new relationships.
