Urban Arts Festival, Amsterdam
Voetboogstraat 11, Amsterdam, Netherlands
On Saturday June 26 2010, from 1pm to 6pm, the American Book Center and the ABC Treehouse present the ABC Urban Arts Festival. The large square in front of The American Book Center Amsterdam will be transformed into an outdoor “atelier”, with artists showing and creating work on-site for the public to enjoy. Some of the hottest local and international artists, representing a cross section of graphic designers, illustrators, graffiti artists, fiber artists, paper-toy designers – all with an urban edge – are scheduled to participate!
At the ABC Treehouse, workshops will offer free ‘hands on’ lessons to the public and discussions with artists, publishers and other industry professionals covering subjects such as design, crafts, illustration and practical crossovers between the areas.
Space Made Live – Curated by Small Media Large
Arthouse @ TSB Repository, Glasgow
June 25-27 2010
Space Made Live was created as a means to exploit the underused space of a category ‘a’ listed building. 27 contemporary artists exhibited work (to, on opening night, 350 ticketed guests) over two days, accompanied by live music, life drawing, comedy and spoken word. The event was incorporated into Glasgow’s West End festival. The whole endeavour was almost entirely generated via social media.
A short film (by Sean of LuGS) about space made live can be seen here.
Free for Charity, ‘SA+UK=’, London
Dalston Lane Cafe, 170C Dalston Lane, London, E8 1NG
Folded collaborative poster-booklet for UK organisation Free for Charity. All proceeds went to charity. The brief was simple – to illustrate whatever South Africa and the UK represented to me and to each other. Free for Charity produced 4 sets of magazines which folded out into 4 x A2 posters combining the artwork of 30 UK artists and 30 SA artists.
