Event description

Description

From Friday 25th - Sunday 27th May, Guest Projects will be celebrating its tenth anniversary!

To mark this very special occasion, we are holding a weekend of performance, theatre, music and interactive workshops, all hosted by current and past residents of Guest Projects.

Guest Projects is an initiative that was conceived by Yinka Shonibare MBE in 2008, which offers the opportunity for early career artists and practitioners of any artistic discipline to have free access to a project space for one month, to host exhibitions, events and workshops. Guest Projects provides an alternative universe and playground for artists and curators, encouraging them to collaborate and create new experimental works in a space where they can fail; It is a laboratory of ideas and a testing ground for new thoughts and actions.

Each year Guest Projects hosts up to six artist residency groups and also offers a Talks and Events programme in which groups can apply to use the space for up to three days for book and magazine launches, workshops, presentations and symposiums. At Guest Projects we also host a bi-monthly supper club entitled The Artist Dining Room, which collaborates with London-based chefs to hold a series of unique and bespoke artist-led supper clubs, offering an alternative dining experience where creative minds can engage and immerse themselves in the life and works of an artist through food.
