Platinum at The Edge, Cheapside // June 2nd 2011 // 6.30 – 11pm
This evening will be a mix of performance installation and lectures, samples of new theatre pieces, explorations of gps gaming and intentionally bad music courtesy of CLUB HOT ZEUS. Entry is free. Cash bar.
Platinum is an emerging artist development scheme for those living in the West Midlands. There is an emphasis on process and exploration rather than the resolution of an idea or artwork. There are six artists on the scheme from a range of backgrounds and experiences. On the 2nd June join us to see the latest works in progress by these artists.
