To offer a taster of things to come Multistory are presenting three artists talks as follows:
18th October 2018 – The Caravan Gallery
14th November 2018 – Erik Kessels (Book here)
13th December 2018 – Martin Parr (Fully booked)
All talks will take place at The Council Chamber, Town Hall, West Bromwich 6pm – 8pm
Blast! will take place across 24th May – 29th June 2019, and will be played out across the streets, shops, libraries and community halls of Sandwell.
The festival will focus on each of Sandwell’s six distinct towns: Oldbury, Wednesbury, West Bromwich, Rowley Regis, Smethwick and Tipton. Finding new and exciting ways of presenting art in community spaces is at the heart of the Blast! experiment. Public space, community venues, pop-up sites, print, broadcasting and online platforms will all play a role in connecting the work of exceptional artists with local people.
Keep in touch: The Blast! Festival website is now live you can find it here.
