Art Strike! at Art '07:
Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal, Cumbria
8th June 2007
Do you feel isolated by the Art World? Would you like to express yourself in a place where your voice will be heard? Join lead artist Graham Martin at the Art '07 on June 8th. We will be running an intervention – Art Strike! - throughout the day.
During the day, striking artists will be waving banners, warming themselves around a brazier, and generally encouraging people not to break the Art Strike. There are consequences for those found being creative and artistic.
Striking artists will also be encouraging visitors to write their own protest slogans on the scrap cardboard provided.
The Art '0's are Arts Council England's annual celebration of the arts in the Northwest. It's a bit like an annual conference with all the boring bits taken out.
The timetable for Art '07 includes work from Lanternhouse as well as Art Strike! and a networking opportunity in Exchange '07.
During the afternoon is a debate that will be recorded for broadcast on Radio 3. All in all, it should be fun and useful.
How can you get involved?
Join us on the day.

Art '07 starts at 10.30am and runs into the evening. The bus will be returning home after the debate at 5pm.
There is an evening event, which costs £10 (available via the Brewery Arts Centre) but you'll have to make your own way home.
If you are going to Kendal under your own steam and would like to take part, please contact Bryan on the same email address so we know the numbers we're dealing with.
