On Friday we got to see the space where the Old Curiosity Shock will be happening – unit 26 of the Queens Square shopping centre in West Bromwich. It’s a tremendous space, and a truly blank canvas:
So, we’ve been busy admin bees and organised this, so now it’s your turn.
To submit work for the show you need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. or post a comment on this blog. THE DEADLINE FOR THIS IS THE 15TH OF OCTOBER, which is next Friday. We must know who is putting in what by that time, and remember: we know what a bunch of creative and resourceful creatures you are 😉
There’s also a bunch of extra promotion happening courtesy of Audiences Central, who are running a pilot scheme to attract visitors to events such as this and whom we’re very chuffed to be working with. There’s also press photographs and suchlike being organised, so it’s a brilliant way to get some promotion.
We are also looking for people to help out with the show, including setting up, manning the store, helping out with workshops, helping to transport equipment and helping to pack up on the 31st. Again, send us an email or comment to volunteer.
The show runs from the Friday 22nd – Saturday 30th October, with installing happening on Wednesday the 20th & Thursday the 21st and the all important private view occuring on 21st from 5-7 (and I can confirm that there WILL be cake and wine!) Workshops are pencilled in for Saturday the 23rd, Monday 25th, Wednesday the 27th and Friday 29th, running from 12 – 4.
So, don’t be a stranger – let’s work together to make this one EPIC!
