ART SOCIAL '14
Art Social ’14 is the first four-day festival of art and culture from pioneering charity and not-for-profit private members’ club, The House of St Barnabas.
Amongst talks, interactive workshops and live music in a 19th Century Chapel in the heart of Soho, emerging artists will display visual and sonic contemporary installations throughout the Grade I listed Georgian town house.
Our mission is to bring people closer together, to seemingly mix oil and water and close the cultural and social gap that exists in our society. Using contemporary art and music to respond to these themes, some surprising, some raw, all set against the backdrop of a House rich in heritage and history, it will be an exciting juxtaposition for the audience to experience
The installation exhibitions will be open during the festival and on Saturdays throughout August with limited free access to members of the public. Entrance appointments can be booked below to view these specially commissoned collaborative pieces by;

The House of St Barnabas is a charity pledging to break the cycle of homelessness and social exclusion in London. They run a social enterprise, a not-for-profit members’ club, to help the people they support back into lasting paid work. Their Employment Academy offers accredited qualifications, on-site work experience, real job opportunities and mentoring. The House of St Barnabas are seeking to redefine the notion of a private members’ club, to challenge stereotypes around the idea of exclusivity and to create a different kind of membership. The club is a creative, socially conscious and vibrant space.
