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.

New Art Exchange

Mimesis: African Soldier 

Join us for an informal and sociable gathering as we view and discuss the latest exhibition at New Art Exchange. 

Mimesis: African Soldier is a powerful multi screen film installation produced by Artist John Akomfrah to remember the millions of African and Colonial Soldiers, labourers and carriers who served in the First World War.

 

This will be a thought provoking session during which we will spend some time viewing the work together and have an open discussion around the topics, themes and stories explored within the films. 

 

Mimesis: African Soldier was commissioned by NAE and 1418-Now, The UK's arts programme for the First World War Centenary. 

Our sessions are a great introduction to the Arts, no prior Art knowledge is necessary and they're a good way to meet new people.
