Time: 10.30 am – 12.30 am
Londoners go through two million single-use plastic water bottles a day, one of the highest rates of bottled water consumption in the country. Some of these plastics don’t get recycled. They end up in our waterways.
Story Of Books, the imprint of GLUE Studio, is partnering with Re:Centre and The Point magazine to present a talk and creative workshop on waterways and the environment. This HF ArtsFest event will see speakers and Re:Centre resident artists presenting their works based on the objects found on the Devonshire coast, the Strait of Malacca and the River Thames.
Story Of Books, The Point magazine and Re:Centre will be discussing this issue via a series of talks and artists workshop for the Hammersmith & Fulham Arts Festival 2019.
10.30-11 am: Re:Centre artists Natalie Cronin and Kate Lowe will talk about their group show Temesis, featuring artworks and installations made or inspired by objects found in the River Thames.
11-11.30 am: Coffee break and Art Studio tour.
