Last week’s iteration of Blast! Festival focused on the town of Rowley Regis. Events included an online curatorial tour by @bethanykane and students from Sandwell College of exhibition ‘Lost Generation IV’, a tour and coffee morning of ‘Stories of Home’ led by the artist Jon Tonks for a group of Polish elders from Polish Millennium House – it was the first trip to West Brom for many! @Centralal also hosted a CEE Artist Networking Event, with great presentations by Birmingham–based artists Aleksova Boyana & Jakub Cerglaz. We screened Martin Parr’s film ‘Mark Goes to Mongolia’ and hosted an ‘in-conversation’ between Martin and Black Country pigeon breeder Mark Evans (with his pigeons!) Anand Chhabra gave a fantastic talk about his project the Apna Heritage Archive at the Guru Nanak Gudwara, and people who attended Cradley Heath Creative Arts Festival got the chance to take part in Vicky Roden’s ‘The Sandwell Honours’ workshop.
We’re now half-way through the festival, with lots more still to come – check out blastphotofestival.com for more events and exhibitions!
