Out and About

Sarah Coggrave – Letters from Astra at Oxfam Bookshop

There’s still time to catch some of the intriguing, entertaining and thought-provoking ALL artworks around town as we head into the final week of this year’s festival. Walking seems to be a big theme this year, with Kenji Lim, Laura Denning and Sally Stenton all offering you a chance to engage differently with your routes through Cambridge, whilst Elena Cologni invites you to join her for a nomadic conversation about place attachment and parenthood.

Don’t forget you can download our free app (search for ALL2016) to help you plan your journey and alert you to nearby nuggets. And this Saturday 29th you can join Robert Good on a guided tour of work around Anglia Ruskin University as part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas – click here to book.

In the meantime, take a look at some photos from events earlier this week…

Friends of Kettle’s Yard Walk

A very good afternoon organised by Derek Matravers and Friends of Kettle’s Yard. We started at the hoardings of Kettle’s Yard and made a linear walk via Museum of Cambridge to Scruffs, Oxfam and ARU, ending up at The Tram Depot for a well-earned half.

Meanwhile in Bloomsbury…

Very good to catch up with ALL2015 artists Nick Gear and Jeremy Dixon. Nick gave a very interesting talk about the role of walking in his work, whilst Jeremy lead a wonderful found poetry and micro-book workshop. Robert Good created a trail of bookworks around Goodenough College – with particular thanks to Laura at Plurabelle Books, Cambridge for the generous loan of some great books, and thanks to Liz Murton and DJ Roberts for joining us on the day.

Artwork after dark

It is well worth staying out a bit later in order to catch two after-dark artworks. Sally Stenton is running a particularly striking projection in the central courtyard of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, whilst Rosanna Greaves‘ gold leaf canopy comes to life at night.

And finally…

Some of our ALL artwork is by its very nature ephemeral and easy-to-miss. So if you didn’t manage to see Annamarie Kardos’ portable sign, here it is for you in her lovely video  documentation of the event:
