POP UP EXHIBITION: INSIDE OUT.
This week we’ve been busy on Askew road with an exhibition by 3 neurodiverse artists; Orlando Richardson, Olly Herford & Kallum Vidal. A collaboration between Kite Art CIC and Teatum+Teatum architects who have kindly facilitated the event in their exciting new development as part of Noiascape spaces from 14th – 24th November 2017. Opening times are Monday – Saturday 3 – 5pm at the pop up gallery, 83 Askew rd.
It was a pleasure to hear how excited the community is to have the exhibition on Askew Road – there is a great sense of neighbourly support to local artists. We have had lots of people interested in the opportunities we offer at Kite Studios for children and adults with additional needs in our events and classes. For example, one mother with an autistic son was so grateful to hear of the ‘SEN London parents’ support group that we put her in touch with and the Charity ‘Unique’ that supports families with members with rare chromosome disorders.
Aside from showcasing the work of these artists, being in the pop up gallery has been a great experience for us to get a chance to talk to the local community of Askew Road about everything we have to offer at Kite Studios.
We were able to tell people about what we do back at the studio, there was lots of interest about our class on Thursday mornings for little ones that combines art and music that not many people knew about, so having the shopping front is making all the difference! We shared news about what our sponsorship fund has been used for this term, with Wendell Park Primary school nurture group visiting for 6 weeks to participate in a clay project, funded by Kite Art CIC.
Don’t worry if you can’t make the exhibition as we will be hosting a Christmas Fair on November 25th at 1 – 5pm & 7 – 10pm – https://www.kitestudios.org/2017/11/20/kite-studios-christmas-fair-2017/
Hope to see more of you there next week,
All the Best,
