Pop-Up Exhibition at Small is…Festival 13/14 September


We had the opportunity to put together an imprompto pop-up exhibition during the Small is… Festival in Bristol, St, George’s Hall over the weekend.

What we learned is how quickly we can put something like this together, and the potential it holds for public spaces, including shopfronts, office spaces and universities for educational or awareness days, talks and conferences on sustainability, waste and recycling.

What art brings to the table in finding solutions towards sustainability is that is inspires curiosity, and then to be curious about something, makes you want to learn more about it, thus opens up a space for education and conversations about waste materials.

Get in touch if you have events coming up, we are happy to come and set up an exhibition to supplement your sustainability message.

Artwork created by: Object…, Fiona Hobson, Thomas Dowdeswell, Fred Plumley, Sadie Few, and Joel Calvert.

What an opportunity and honour to be working with such inspiring, talented people! I am in awe. We have pulled it off! in 2 weeks 25 artists, and with the help and dedication of 10 volunteers, we have managed to pull together an exhibition of excellent quality. We have had workshops running everyday engaging and inspiring kids and adults alike. Today we had Sadie Few and Jan Blake joining in a workshop exploring cardboard. With Louise Block getting creative with plastic. These works contribute to the exhibition, allowing for everyone to be involved. I’d like to cordially invite you to join us and not to miss this wonderful event of collaboration. Here are some pics from the last two days:
