The Artist Hotel – Opening Night

09/06/2017 - 10/06/2017
5:30 pm - 12:00 pm

Please note: this event has been postponed until 7th – 8th September. Revised times and event details coming soon.

Be the first guests to spend the night at The Artist Hotel: Knowle West!

Knowle West Media Centre is looking for passionate socially-engaged artists to join us at the beginning of The Artist Hotel – an exciting project exploring how artists and communities can create more sustainable models for living, working and making art across the whole city – from centre to suburb.

We invite you to join us in Knowle West to sleep over, meet local people, explore the area and talk more about how we can co-create the spaces and tools needed to counter dominant but deficient models of ‘regeneration’.

Two micro-commissions for socially engaged artworks will be announced on the night.

Friday 9th June:

5.30pm: Meet at Knowle West Media Centre and see the current exhibition about citizen-led housing.
6pm-7pm: Join a walking tour of Knowle West – panoramic views, pioneering urbanism and hidden gems.
7pm-late: Be special guests at Filwood Community Centre’s award ceremony dinner and disco: Hearts and Stars
Late till morning: Sleepover / Camp

Saturday 10th June:

10am-12 noon: Breakfast Discussion – How and where do artists live/work/make in the city? Co-hosted with Coexist

Please note:

Two ticket types are available: the Artist Hotel Experience (£15 plus booking fee) and Breakfast Discusion (free).

Further information about the event and full details of what you will need to bring for the sleepover / camp will be provided in advance.
