Idit’s work will get you to Play Cambridge Now or Never! – a mobile app that invites you to take an interactive ‘live art’ journey; reclaiming public spaces in imaginative ways through playful, even mischievous, instructions.

And Anna will premiere Splitter – an experiential installation with an immersive soundtrack for 2. (Spaces are limited, pre-booking recommended.)

BEYOND THE BRICK

Curated by guest artists Jack Cornell and Time Shuker-Yates, BEYOND THE BRICK will run from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 May with the Private View and BBQ on Friday 26 May from 6 – 9pm and Exhibition open from 10am – 4pm over the weekend.
This exciting exhibition includes work by Kyle Warwick, Jamie O’Brien, Kienan Naylor and Kieran O’Brien. This group of talented young artists from Girton are part of an art project linked to London’s Tate Gallery. Circuit is a four year national programme connecting 15-25 year olds to arts in galleries and museums working in partnership with the youth and cultural sector. Led by the Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, it provides opportunities for young people to steer their own learning and create cultural activity across art disciplines.

With jobs ranging from photographer, screen printer and tattooist, these artists are aged between 16-24 and are all members of Girton Young Project (GYP)

This is the first ‘white cube’ exhibition for the Circuit Cambridge Group which is connected to Wysing Arts Centre and Kettle’s Yard.

This binding is a real beauty combining the best of western and Japanese bindings resulting in a closed but exposed spine which lies flat when open. We will be using a heavy-weight paper so you will can choose how you want to use your book – a perfect journal, sketchbook or photograph album.
All classes are designed to that you can make books at home using easily available materials and without the need for heavy tools or equipment and the Secret Belgian is also suitable for beginners.
