What’s on over Summer

Twenty Arty Acts

In celebration of current exhibition Hazelhurst 20 Years, Hazelhurst has invited 20 artists to devise, design or make an activity that inspires individuals to act creatively, as part of a collection of online activities called Twenty Arty Acts. Content includes how-to art making videos, instructional activities or prompts for participants to respond in action, engage in a meditative act or make an artwork. Artists include Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Mulga and Louisa Chircop.

Visit us online to view them all, and share your own work by completing an activity, uploading a photo to your social media page and tagging us at #hazelhurst20artyacts – we would love to see your Act!
