  • Another Spring: Curator’s Tour

    Join the exhibition’s curator, art historian and critic Dr Jean Wainwright for a special tour of ‘Another Spring’. Another Spring brings together work by a group of internationally recognised artists. The exhibition reflects on the current trends and broader developments of nationalist impulses in Western society, where the debated question of citizenship, the foundation for identity and political governance is tied to ultranationalist concerns and increased measures to regulate and control the movement of people across borders. The fear of national invasion and the economic erosion by an ‘outsider’ increasingly throws into question whether moving across borders will become even more difficult in years to come.

  • Protest Poster Workshop

    Create a series of two-colour posters using a vintage Risograph machine. Combine collaged source material with marker pens and stencils to create your template. Workshop leaders will also discuss legal ways of sharing your posters with the wider public and shouting your subversive message to the world!

  • Lord of the Logos workshop

    Join Christophe Szpajdel, the internationally acclaimed and go-to designer of heavy metal logos - for a 2hr session to design your own logo/s. Following his 2016 commissions for Rhianna and Metallica and work for Foo Fighters, we are lucky to be able to offer insight into the working process of a designer at the top of his game.

  • Art Machina
