Family Saturdays | Rhiannon Armstrong Special

Exchange artist-in-residence Rhiannon Armstrong will be leading this Special Family Saturdays workshop. Come along to find out more about her work and get involved in some text and poetry activities.

27 July 11.00 - 13.00hrs

Family Saturdays takes place from 11.00 - 13.00hrs every week and is suitable for all ages. No prior booking is required.

Every Saturday Aspex hosts a free drop-in workshop for all of the family! Each of these unique workshops are led by local artists Bethia Wentworth and Jordan Baines. This summer each of these sessions will take inspiration from exchange.

About Exchange

For our 2019 summer programme Aspex has commissioned three artists to create new artwork in response to the theme of ‘Exchange’ and all of its potential meanings.

From July - September 2019 we invite you to explore the exchange of skills, knowledge and experiences; ownership and the trading of items, as well as currency and value.

Take part in one of our many exhibitions, creative workshops and events - working alongside our commissioned artists: Rhiannon Armstrong, Monica Bonomo and Susan Stockwell.

These activities will inform the development of the commissioned artworks, created through a series of artist residencies at the gallery. 

Events and activities are being held at the gallery in Gunwharf Quays, as well as locations throughout the city, including Victorious Festival on Southsea Common.

Exchange is generously supported by Canoe Lake Leisure, Gunwharf Quays, The Faculty of Creative & Cultural Industries at The University of Portsmouth, The Partnership Foundation and Victorious Festival. This project has been developed in association with the INTERREG EU funded project PONToon which centres community development, social/economic inclusion and equality.
