Every week until 19th August we are running a Culture @ Home session on Wednesday afternoons at 2pm. These are always free and the creatives are each paid £150 for taking part. After the sessions we compress the recording and where agreed with the artist, make it available online so that those who could not join our sessions are able to make use of them at home.
This week we were lucky enough to have movement director and choreographer Susanna Dye open us up to the idea of using your home as a creative tool for movement and to look at these places we inhabit with fresh eyes. The session is below, thanks to all who took part.
So lovely people the inaugural Fareham Arts FEstival is here!!!!
August 8th -16th
There is so much going on over 9 days in Fareham that your eyes will melt. We have exhibitions in 19 venues featuring some amazing talent from as far afield as Spain. You can come and pick up free art magnets from Sticks Gallery too. From textiles to painting, installation to print there is something for everyone!
The Art Market. We can possibly fit a couple more in but you must let us know soon as this is the first one we do not want it overcrowded and give our amazing artists and artisans room to shine. This is going to be amazing. The quality of work coming in is massive, I am very excited about this one!!!
We also have free music, including today’s Choir Showcase at Locks Heath Shopping Village and very cheap gigs that are only £5 a ticket
Plus Free Theatre
Writing Workshops, book signings, performances and poetry (with the exception of Apples & Snakes this is all free to attend)
Art Workshops: on Monday we have bookmaking and next Saturday a Children’s Mixed Media workshop
Film with the brilliant screening of The Lego Movie at Bursledon Brickworks with free museum entry included in the ticket.
The screening for the Fareham Shorts: International Short Film Competition. This will be an amazing night with red carpet, awards and Q&A session with the filmmakers
We’d love as many of you to come down as possible and help us build on this in future years to create a massive arts festival that celebrates all the brilliance and diversity that exists in this our chosen field!!
This Thursday is the private view for our newest exhibition: HOPE. Featuring artists from around the UK working in a variety of media, this latest exhibition asks what is hope and what happens when hope is lost; where do we go next?
The private view begins at 5:30 and ends at 7:30pm. We will have wine and nibbles available for our guests, and being the lovely kind of people we are, there will even be soft drinks for those drivers and tee-totallers among you!
Following our private view the exhibition will run until the first week of July and will be open to the public every Saturday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12-4pm
