Exhibition Preview: 17 September 6-9pm

Millions online… video… home-editing… YouTube… conversational spectacle overnight… gulf between cinematic and lo-fi film narrows… viewers become creators… anarcho-democracy. TestBed 1 showcases the series of new digital screen-based commissions produced during open residencies at Beaconsfield between March and September 2010.

TestBed 1 artists’ discussion: 19 September at 2pm

Chaired by Francis Summers, an open discussion with artists commissioned for TestBed 1 will take as its starting point the idea that internet ‘browsing’ may have become implicit in the process of making work.

Francis Summers is a video artist and lecturer, currently conducting doctoral research by practice at the Royal College of Art, London.

TestBed 1 is produced as part of Beaconsfield’s curatorial mentoring scheme for emerging artist-curators. Mentees: Dafna Talmor and Joseph Walsh.

Secret Santa's elves are hard at work!

Dear Neighbours

Secret Santa's elves are hard at work!
“Knowing local people care at Christmas is as important to the recipients as the gifts themselves.”
'Secret Santa' donations are beginning to land on the doorstep!
Many from individuals who prefer to remain anonymous,
and also from our commercial neighbours.

As soon as we have reached our 'Secret Santa' target
to provide shopping vouchers for 100 local needy young families (£4,000),
we can focus on our 'Grey Power' initiative
to provide a mini-bus and meal (with a funny hat and cracker!)
for isolated elderly in Kennington
who might otherwise be home alone on Christmas Day.

Big thanks especially to The Dog House PHwho have donated twelve 'Secret Santa' parcels -
a whopping £480!


Other very generous donations are in from:

Beefeater Gin Distillery

South London Pacific

Rolfe Judd Ltd

Coversure Insurance Services


Very many thanks to all

This means you will sit in the best seats... for FREE!!!!
It also means you will have to let me know about ANY access requirements you or your group may have when booking your tickets with me, this is so I can allocate seats that you can access.
