Summer Special – Get Involved!

Our Summer Event at Studio 24 is coming on Wednesday July 19th – and we need you to get involved!

POP UP EXHIBITION

We’re putting a show up for the day. We’d love you to show your work. All artists are welcome – especially Arts & Minds members! Bring two or three pieces. If your work is BIG do let us know. We’ll be putting the show up from 10.30am on the 19th. So you can drop off work then, and come back later – or help us. The show opens to the public at 2pm but our main celebration will be in the early evening, with live performances from 6pm.

Email Tom to let us know you’re bringing artwork: tom.bailey@artsandmindsnetwork.org.uk

1:1 OUTSIDE IN SESSIONS

Founded by Pallant House Gallery in 2006, Outside In provides a platform for artists who define themselves as facing barriers to the art world due to health, disability, social circumstance or isolation. Artists who meet the Outside In criteria can get help to create an online gallery. During the 1 hour one-to-one session they can support you to: photograph your artwork, write your artist statement and sign up for an online gallery. If you are part of a group, they can show the facilitator how to create groups and individual pages too.

If you’re interested in signing up for one of six sessions, email Hannah at h.whitlock@pallant.org.uk
