A week of exhibitions, performances, workshops and discussions


A week of exhibitions, performances, workshops and discussions devised by OSE associates to mark the end of Year 2.

As Open School East’s second year comes to an end, the associates organise a final week of events to share what they have been working on and thinking about during their time at OSE. The week promises to be eclectic and to involve food in one form or another, in good OSE tradition…

Join Mathis Collins, Afshin Dekhordi, Daniel Kelly, Leslie Kulesh, John Lawrence, Kristin Luke, Sophie Mallett, Paul Maheke Ngamaha, Hari Rajaledchumy, Tina Rowe, Shiri Shalmy, Marie Toseland, Michael Whitby and Laura Yuile, as well as returning residency artists Carla Cruz and Antonio Contador, for some art, conversation and food!
