  • North East
  • interdisciplinary arts, visual arts

Date: Thursday 21 June  

Time: 21:00 - 00:00

Location: Allenheads Contemporary Art, Old School House, Allenheads, Hexham, Northumberland, NE47 9HR

Join Artists, Robbie Coleman and Jo Hodges in a creative exploration of alternate histories, navigation and space travel.

This event will take place at twilight on the summer solstice as we transition from light to dark and will be a chance to guide and contribute to the artist’s final project in July.

Are there parallels between the desire to explore beyond the limits of the planet and the limits of human consciousness? Are there connections between the utopian visions that fuelled space exploration in the USSR and the explorations of altered states in the hedonistic counter culture of 1960’s USA. 

As we increasingly pass navigational responsibility for our external journeys to a constellation of orbiting machines, do we also need to find new symbols, allegories or metaphors to guide our internal journeys?

Can we create navigational strategies that have agency in both?

Meet at ACA Old School House at 21:00 

From 23:00 there will be a fireside conversation to conclude the event.  Hope to see you there!

This event is FREE. Just turn up on the night, or sign up via Eventbrite
