In May this year the big room cic hosted its 4th Authentic Artist workshop with Kath Burlinson.
We are delighted to announce that Kath has organised the very first northern Authentic Artist Asylum (AAA) for Saturday, 16 September from 10am to 5pm.
AAA days are a key way for those who have attended an AA workshop to stay connected with their artistry and an artistic community/family. They are a chance to share work/ideas or just be in the AA space together. The hope is that this event will be the start of a self-generating ‘northern AAC hub’.
This event is open to invitees (ie, those who have not attended an AA workshop) - a few people have expressed curiosity about the Authentic Artist Collective and attending a workshop. If this is you now is your chance to find out more. Contact either Owen or Hayley (@thebigroom.org) for more information.
On 22/23 July 2023 the Emergence Foundation held an event to celebrate the final round of grants. The event was both an ending and an opening… to what next? We (the big room cic) look forward to finding out what that will be.
You can find out more about the Emergence Foundation here. And links to the two opening speakers Esther Stanford-Xosei, who amongst her many roles is a Reparations Specialist and Decolonial Pan-Africanist Jurisconsultant and Community Advocate and Agamemnon Otero Director & CEO of Energy Garden, Co-founder of Repowering London, Brixton Energy, and Community Energy England. The vision and commitment of both speakers say much about the Emergence Foundation and what it stands for.
