Space Invaders Toolkit Launch
Space Invaders Toolkit Launch, Film Showing & Panel Discussion With FrancisKnight, artists Nicole Mollett, Lucy Steggals and Chrissie Williams from Castle Connections, Queenborough
Space Invaders featured three artists' residencies held in community venues across the Isle of Sheppey to enable artists to work in a temporary new environment. It provided the time and space for an artist to develop their work and creatively explore new ideas. Each venue also took the opportunity to promote their facilities to a wider audience.
Join us for a film screening of a 'Colour Mining Blue', a portrait of Blue Town created from data (photographic stills, audio recordings, film clips) gathered in Blue Town, Isle of Sheppey, during Feb/ March 2012.
Thursday 8th November Castle Connections Railway Terrace, Well Rd Queenborough, Isle of Sheppey 6.30 - 8.30pm
This is a partnership event between FrancisKnight and Swale Borough Council
