The Kitchen | Open Space | 2017/18

A creative social space, where art, performance, craft and film will be made, shared and inspired. The Kitchen is Oriel Davies’ pop-up project and event space, open to visitors from October 2017 to January 2018, presenting a vibrant programme of workshops, activities, events and talks alongside fantastic opportunities for collaboration and community intervention.

The Kitchen is a room to relax and hang out in as well as a space for creativity. Designed as a flexible environment for a wide range of activity, The Kitchen will continuously adapt and change over the four months as visitors, artists and community groups create and share their work.

Programme information will be available online from the end of September.

Building on the achievements of The Drawing Room in year one, The Kitchen is the next edition of Open Space, a two-year pilot project that runs alongside, and in addition to, the Gallery's existing exhibition and learning programmes.

Open Space is supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and the Arts Council of Wales.
