ARTSPEAK MEETS - GALLERY VISITS
ArtSpeak Meets is the strand of the project where we explore Gallery spaces, arts venues, events, and other cultural activities together.
Our gallery walkthroughs are a great introduction to the arts. They're relaxed, informal and sociable; giving you the opportunity to meet new people and find out more about the work whilst exploring the latest exhibitions.
We're also introducing trips to venues further afield and are running these in seasons whereby there is a different arts focus in each season.
Autumn Visual Arts Season
This Autumn we're visiting venues with a Visual Arts focus and running accompanying creative workshops inspired by the work in the collections and current exhibitions at each venue. Visit the Creative Workshops page for more details about each workshop.
Winter Literary Season
From next January we're focusing on literature and will be visiting venues that have become renowned due to their links with some of the most prominent writers and poets of the nineteenth and twentieth century.
We'll be delving into the history and the works of John Clare, DH Lawrence, Lord Byron, Alan Sillitoe and more, through visits and tours of John Clare Cottage, Newstead Abbey, DH Lawrence Birthplace Museum and a Literary Lions walking tour around Nottingham City Centre.
More details to come soon...
