E17 Art Trail Idea Sparks: Talk series
Monday 5 September | 7pm-9pm | Free Entry
William Morris Gallery, Lloyd Park, Forest Road, Walthamstow E17 4PP
Booking in advance recommended via: www.artillery.eventbrite.com
The first of six monthly talks to generate ideas in anticipation of the next E17 Art Trail, begins with a Cultivate Festival special. Speakers include Rosalind Fowler and Tasha Marks.
Rosalind is Artist in Residence at the William Morris Gallery, her work explores the connections between William Morris’s “ecotopian” ideals and Waltham Forest’s expanding network of urban food-growing sites. Tasha Marks is an award-winning food historian and artist, who explores the relationship between food, art and history. Her practice, AVM Curiosities, champions the use of food as an artistic medium, with projects ranging from museum-style exhibitions and sculptural installations, to interactive lectures and limited-edition confectionery.
Seed Packet Project
Artist and filmmaker Rosalind Fowler will be inviting you, as part of Cultivate Festival and following her recent artist residency at the William Morris Gallery, to take part in her seed packet project and share your dreams and visions for an imaginary future London. Your ideas will be displayed as part of her Autumn show at the William Morris Gallery from 8 October – 6 November.
Opportunities to take part and more details will also be shared at the Cultivate Gardeners’ Q&A on 11 September, and Cultivate Produce Show on 4 September.
She also needs your empty seed packets, so please bring along any spare ones you have!
