Sara Jaspan, Exhibitions Editor at Creative Tourist, previews the upcoming British Ceramics Biennial in Stoke-on-Trent.
We are programming a series of Away Day visits both within the region and beyond to explore artist-led activity, to profile the work of artists based outside the capital and to create networking opportunities.
Our third visit is to the gallery and studios at AirSpace Gallery and nearby artist studio complex ACAVA.
Engine Away Day: AirSpace and ACAVA, Stoke-on-Trent
Saturday 14 October 2017
At 1pm we will meet at ACAVA for a tour of the studios and exhibition, and a presentation on the ACAVA studio model. From there, we will go on an artist and historian led walk from Stoke Town up to Hanley City Centre, stopping at points on the way to hear about arts and regeneration in the city.
The walk finishes at AirSpace Gallery, offering the chance to visit their current exhibition, FOUNT, in partnership with the British Ceramics Biennial, and to learn more about AirSpace, its structure and projects over tea and coffee. This is followed by some networking time.
(The British Ceramics Biennial takes place at Spode Factory and would be an ideal way to spend your morning in Stoke-on-Trent, should you choose to arrive early).
Everyone is welcome. Attendees are expected to cover their own travel costs to and from Stoke-on-Trent.
To reserve a free place, please contact Anneka French on firstname.lastname@example.org
Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and must be reserved no later than Tuesday 10 October 2017.
Our third Engine Away Day visit is to the gallery and studios at AirSpace Gallery and nearby artist studio complex ACAVA.
