Invitation to the opening event of KIELDER: ONSITE - Thursday 16th June 2016
You are invited to the opening event of KEILDER: ON SITE
Opening event: Thursday 16th June 2016
KIELDER: ONSITE / OFFSITE is a collaborative project between Newcastle University’s Fine Art Department and The Kielder Partnership. An ambitious year-long project, it explores opportunities for visual arts within the unique environment of Kielder Water & Forest Park.
ONSITE is the culmination of the project, a set of temporary works situated in and around the forest. The works are site responsive and interpret the forest in different ways. Although diverse they explore contemporary interrelated themes of narrative, identity, place and transience.
A coach will leave the lay-by near the Hancock Museum on Claremont Road, Newcastle at 10:30am.
It will drive to Kielder Water and Forest Park and will stop at Lewisburn inlet, Kielder Castle and Kielder Observatory.
At each location we will visit the artworks situated in the area before boarding the coach and travelling to the next site.
It is anticipated that the coach will depart from Kielder Water and Forest Park at 6pm at the latest, expecting to be back in Newcastle by 8pm.
The coach will return to the lay-by near the Hancock Museum on Claremont Road.
Although the coach will depart promptly at 10:30am, the timings for the rest of the day are not exact so some flexibility is required.
The coach is free but there are limited places on the coach so booking is required.
If you would like to attend the opening event please leave a message on the KIELDER: ONSITE/OFFSITE website stating how many places you would like to book on the coach.
