Appeal for Artist Lock-In Materials

No comments | Blog

At the end of the month 12 Artists from around the world will begin our Artist Lock-In at Elizabeth Castle, under the guidance of Facilitator Sue Hill, former Artistic Director of the Eden Project and Associate Director of WildWorks Theatre Company. The artists will spend their time on the castle making work, as well as living there, and will not leave for ten days. They will be truly ‘locked in’.

As a registered charity with a limited budget, we are hugely reliant on the generous support of local people and companies to make our projects happen. Ahead of the project’s launch, we’re attempting to get our hands on a few vital bits and pieces (some more obscure than others) that the artists will be using to create their collaborative work. If you’re able to help out in any way, by donating or lending us any of the listed items, we’d be hugely grateful! Please contact: or call us on 617521.
