The Human Race
5th to 9th December, 2016
A crisis is defined as “a time of intense difficulty or danger.” When looking at the Syrian Refugee ‘Crisis’, the notion that we are all one race, the human race, seems to have been suppressed. We are situated in a hyper-documented visual landscape watching the crisis unfold; yet the international humanitarian response has been inadequate. This exhibition is a response to these current events, confronting the vast visual record of the crisis. Through curation of existing news and documentary imagery placed in an immersive environment, the audience is asked to reignite their compassion and campaign for a united humanity.

PS+NO= (PROJECT SPACE PLUS – NO OUTPUTS EQUALS)
7th – 14th November, 2016
During the week there will be an ‘In progress’ show in the gallery of MA Fine Art students and staff.
The idea is to subvert the gallery space to become a space of production; to show the making of art as opposed to making a show of art.
The idea is to turn the gallery into the studio, to be in there, to use it, to be active.
The learning occurs through making and doing.
Every part of the process of the artist making is visible to the visitor, come and see and feel free to ask questions of the artists as they work on making their ideas visible as art.
1st – 2nd November, 2016
This is a 2 day event full of drawing activities aimed at Lincolnshire schools, but open to all. It features machines and mechanicals, and celebrates drawing and technology.
This event is co-hosted by Siemens, and they have allowed the event organisers to use their Turbine Training Facility as a drawing venue.
There will be a wide range of drawing activities, ranging from the more traditional to monoprint and digital drawing, and ‘crazy creatures’ and even Etch-a-Sketch-Bicycle drawing.
