Air Lab – Stories from Above

air lab1Air Lab – Stories from Above

Monday 6th + Saturday 11th November

10am-4pm

A professional development course for emerging artists to gain valuable training from experienced practitioners to design creative projects with young people.

We are delighted to welcome guest artist Mariele Neudecker to the first day of training.

Artists will have the opportunity to work with Mariele, alongside Emma Posey, Air Lab Associate Producer and Rachel Dunlop, AAW Participation Manager to collaboratively explore and develop workshop ideas. In the second session artists will be supported to facilitate their workshops with young participants from Arts Alive Wales’ projects and gain critical feedback.

‘German-born, Mariele Neudecker (b1965) lives and works in Bristol. She is known internationally for her glass vitrines containing landscapes of forests, lakes or mountains together with simulated weather effects. These often evoke other pictures or artists. Also using sculpture, film and photography, Neudecker creates a playful frisson between historical representations of the Sublime landscape and our perception, imagination and memory of experience.’ – Tate.

Mariele is a Professor at Bath Spa University. www.marieleneudecker.co.uk

Volunteers are warmly invited to join Bettina Reeves for the 2017 Abergavenny Food Festival art project.  Bettina, who retires this summer from her position as senior tutor for Theatre Design at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, has chosen chickens for this year’s art project, a theme last visited in 2008 “We will be crafting chickens from withy and willow, paper and fabric and fluttering amongst these beauties will be native butterflies of silk”.

The project takes place in the Arts Alive Wales studio over 15 intensive days from 29 August to 13 September, 9.30am to 5.30pm and will be installed in Abergavenny Market Hall in time for the Festival weekend on 16/17 September.  This hugely enjoyable and rewarding project is open to volunteers  of all abilities aged over 16 years.  Join us to share and learn new skills and to enjoy the camaraderie, fun and great lunches.  We look forward to welcoming familiar as well as new faces.

Bring lunch to share and a pair of scissors
