The RGspaces Tricycle visits OHOS

The RGspaces Tricycle is busily making appearances all over town to promote the many events and activities associated with Reading Year of Culture, and to highlight just how much is going on in the wide range of venues and spaces around the Town. On Saturday 16th April the tricycle visited us at Brock Keep, during the current exhibition of work by Amy-Rose Holland and Peter Driver: 'A Gaol Ballad and Other Assorted Love Songs'.

Watch out for the tricycle all around Town this year.

RGspaces and the Tricycle is a brilliant initiative by Annette and Alex Haworth to raise awareness of the rich cultural life of Reading and all the often overlooked venues and activities that are making Reading a cultural centre.

WordUp! Two OHOS artists' project for the Year of Culture.

Reading’s Year of Culture has a different theme each month. Since April’s theme is New Writing, OHOS artists Robert Fitzmaurice and Peter Driver have devised a project to engage with the imaginations of people all around the Town through the simple power of words.
The project places artworks using carefully chosen words in locations around the town in such a way that the combination of word and location are seen afresh.
By giving prominence to one word or a short phrase that is some way relates to the host venue, viewers are encouraged to reflect upon the history and identity of the town in new and thought-provoking ways.
Robert and Peter's project has its own website were you can find out more. As well as highlighting the art at each venue the website also promotes some online artworks which will be added to throughout the month. Please click on THIS LINK to go to the website, find out more and to participate.
