From Friday 21 – Sunday 23 January ARC will be closed to the public as part of UPRISING (IRL/URL).
Run by one of ARC’s Artists of Change Symoné, this weekend long takeover gives artists of the Global Majority* from across the country the chance to network and take part in informal performances, workshops, and discussions.
Friday and Saturday will focus on allowing the artists to cultivate their artistic practices, try their hands at new skills, network, or just relax in a stimulating and safe environment.
You can keep up to date with the takeover as it’s happening via ARC’s social media.
