Open School East comes West

CAST, 3 Penrose Road, Helston TR13 8TP

Saturday 19 July 2014 – Friday 25 July 2014

CAST has invited Associates from Open School East to undertake a ’summer camp’ in the CAST building in Helston. They arrive on Saturday 19 and will stay until Saturday 26 July, camping in rooms at the east end of the building. 

Open School East is a study programme for twelve associate artists, housed in the old Rose Lipman Library in De Beauvoir Town, East London: Emphasising cooperation and experimentation, the Open School East initiative was set up in 2013 to facilitate artistic learning and to provide an informal environment for the sharing of knowledge and skills between artists, local residents and the broader public. 

They are planning a programme of informal open events every evening from Monday 21 through Friday 25 July, using the café space at CAST (and outdoor areas as well if the weather is kind). The programme will begin with a Matchmakers evening on Monday 21 July.

On Tuesday 22 July OSE have invited the philosopher Robin Mackay to give a lecture in their Bad Vibes Club series - on contingency and hyper chaos.

On Wednesday 23 July there will be an oral history evening, with Radio Anti, a pirate radio station run by two of the OSE Associates.

There will further events on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 July, involving music, screenings, cheap food and drink.

All events run from 6 to 9pm; the event on Friday 25 is likely to run on.
