Artists’ Summer Camp is a chance to get creative in a space with other people – it’s as simple as that. You might want to make something together or play on your own; it’s up to you. Artists’ Summer Camp will provide a workspace and interesting and stimulating people. Just bring anything you may need to make, the site is in close proximity to city centre art shops etc.
Create in the space for a couple of hours, an afternoon, or over week or two: you decide!
