Journey into LOST EONS: Three Worlds. Artist David Blandy and young artists from the Venture Arts’ studio have been reimagining Manchester 8000 years from now.
Niamh, Raven and George from Venture Arts have spent time with David, talking, drawing and writing. Their collective imaginings have been captured in the zine LOST EONS: Three Worlds.
For Art Assembly, the group are transforming their collaborative work into an immersive installation at Manchester Art Gallery – inviting the public to join them in speculative world-building and share their own vision for Manchester far into the future. This is a project to imagine other ways of being.
Drop-in anytime between 10am-5pm to explore the immersive installation and enjoy the drawing & zine table.
