2-5pm. Free (includes refreshments). RSVP essential here.

Hunt & Darton Cafe is an award winning pop-up performance installation and fully functioning cafe- where everything is considered as art.

Touring the UK for the past 3 years, Hunt & Darton Cafe has visited up to 10 different city’s and opened for business for a month in each location taking over empty shops, programming local and national artists and open for all. Artist Jenny Hunt & Holly Darton along with invited guest speakers will share the story of the cafe and knowledge of some of its key elements including Artist-led initiatives, pop ups, working in empty shops, participatory arts and developing a real community. 

The symposium aims to encourage more activity to happen in spaces that people can stumble upon and will equip artists, venue promoters and local councils with the tools, knowledge and confidence necessary to make this happen.

Free toolkit about the logistics of setting up off-site live events, working in empty shops and creatively facilitating a pop up project will be available on the day.
