National Poetry Day at the Museum of Futures – in Pictures

‘Say it With a Poem’ was held on Thursday 6th October, National Poetry Day, at the Museum of Futures. Poetry was created, read and shared by people who dropped in from the afternoon until late in the evening.

It was a great bonus to have Future Mellon‘s time capsule there, with Andreas creating a gallery space downstairs in the museum, a space for people to write a message to the future. The time capsule was then sealed with great ceremony, and will not be opened again until way into the future: 5th December 2092!

Thanks to Lisa Davison and Sinead Keegan of All the Sins– this would not have happened without their support. Also thanks to the Museum of Futures- a great venue for this event, allowing everyone the space to try a range of different hands-on activities for making and discovering new poems.

Finally, a BIG Thank you to Lisa Davison for taking these photos.

TIME CAPSULE (installation, 2016) concept & realization futuremellon/not yet art

During the pop-up exhibition ∀ – universal quantification, held at the Museum of Futures in Surbiton, the art collective futuremellon/not yet art, asked visitors to leave their messages to the future. All the letters were kept inside a time capsule, which will be finally sealed during the National Poetry Day 2016.

On the 6th of October 2016 participants will have the last opportunity to leave their personal message addressed to a chosen recipient. By adding a recipient’s contact (email or home address), their messages will be delivered to a special person once the time capsule will be opened into a far in the future day. The opening date of the capsule is still unknown, but it will be drawn by lot after the time capsule is firmly closed. Until then, the capsule and its keys will be safely stored.

So please come and a write a message to someone in the future and be part of this adventure through time.

More information about the events being held at the Museum of Futures for National Poetry Day can be found here and Facebook event is here.

Art for a Day…Today!

Kay Galbraith- The Art Fairy
Kay Galbraith- The Art Fairy

Art For A Day will be a multi-disciplinary art event over 24 hours raising money for Creative Youth.
Beginning at 3pm on the 29th August during the community picnic in St Andrew’s Square, Surbiton, Art For A Day will see multiple artists creating work and running workshops over the 24 hours and will be spread out between the Lamb Pub and the Museum of Futures.

Two artists Kay Galbraith and Eddie Langham will be creating a piece of art over the 24 hours. Kay will be painting and Eddie will be making a fashion piece. Members of the community will be invited to bring their inspiration and take part in both pieces.

From the Lamb website:

The wonderful Kay Galbraith will be creating a painting over 24hours, she told us a little bit about her and the project:

“I started painting in January 2012 and shortly after I found myself illustrating a book written by Robin Hutchinson called The Little Rainbow Coloured Bird which supports Creative Youth.
From then on I always supported Creative Youth and the wonderful festival that fills Kington with energy and life for a few
weeks in July.
I had been mulling over what fund raising event I could possibly do to support them when I came up with the idea of painting a watercolour over 24 hours! Another reason being is I feel I don’t paint enough and this will make me paint!!!
The painting will then be auctioned later in the year with all monies going to Creative Youth Charity.”

Throughout the event many other artists will be producing work which will culminate in an exhibition and auction in a few months. There will also be many workshops and opportunities to get involved and create something of your own which could be included in the exhibition.

The money raised through this event will go to Creative Youth, organisers of the international Youth Arts Festival. Creative Youth enables young people to realise their potential through the arts, develops young people by equipping them with the skills and confidence to succeed in business and the arts, and celebrates the achievements of young people in the arts worldwide during the International Youth Arts Festival. It is a special charity helping the headliners of tomorrow get noticed and helping those young people who need skills, direction and support to get noticed too!
