Highlights from our first festival of arts & culture, Art Social 14. Supported by The Arts Council and Art Review.
'Art Social ’14 is the first multi-disciplinary festival from pioneering charity and not-for-profit private members’ club, The House of St Barnabas, which will open its doors to the public from 31 July – 3 August 2014.'
Amongst an innovative programme of talks, interactive workshops and live music performances in the ornate surroundings of its’ 19th century chapel, acclaimed and emerging artists have been commissioned to produce visual and sonic installations throughout the Grade 1 listed Georgian town house. The festival, programmed in collaboration with Daydreaming Projects, will feature three central artistic collaborations, to be exhibited at the House throughout August, around which the rest of the festival will revolve.
Our vision is to bring people closer together, to seemingly mix oil and water and close the cultural and social gap. Using contemporary art and music to respond to these themes, some surprising, some raw, all set against the backdrop of our House, rich in heritage and social history, it will be an exciting juxtaposition for audiences to experience and explore.
