So. It turns out I am organising an exhibition of visual art.
I have been involved with for two years now. Back in January, Sputnik and Creative Arts Network launched a mixed-medium, open-submission project, asking artists to respond to the question WhatIsItToBeHuman? We had a great response and visual art exhibition is the touring the UK.
WhatIsItToBeHuman? will be showing at the Holy Biscuit, Newcastle, from Monday 20th July to Saturday 25th July, 11-4 pm. We also had three events around the exhibition:
Sunday 19th July, 1–3 pm: Sputnik Sunday Launch.
Bring a picnic and enjoy the first chance to see the exhibition and engage with Sputnik. Drinks and fruit freely available.
Wednesday 22nd July, 7–9 pm: Sputnik Hub.
An opportunity to view the exhibition, with a discussion about Sputnik from 8 pm.
Friday 24th July: Sputnik Acoustic.
An evening of live music and poetry.
Doors open 7 pm, performance begins 8 pm. Drinks and snacks.
If you are nowhere near the North-East of England you can view the exhibition online at www.whatisittobehuman.co.uk along with tracks from the music project and ebooks (in standard ePub and Kindle mobi formats) of the new writing anthology (which I edited).
Our WhatIsItToBeHuman? pack (postcards, CD album and printed anthology) is available to buy.
