This October, we’re inviting members of the public to attend our unique art exhibition in the centre of Bath that questions the relationship with this ever-evolving digital world. The exhibition, entitled ‘Connected’, is taking place during Bath’s Digital Festival on Friday 25th October and Saturday 26th October at Black Chalk Studios and has been created in collaboration with the Connect Centre.
The digital world has given rise to some of the most extraordinary advances of our time. Laptops, iPads, phones, everything is in the palm of our hands. But what happens if you don’t have access to these resources? What happens if you don’t even know how to use them? Homelessness is extremely isolating in itself, but with more and more vulnerable men and women lacking digital skills their ability to adapt and grow in this digital age is becoming even more challenging. In response to this growing issue, we’re hosting this public exhibition to bring this issue to light.
Artists from across the city have been contributing to the exhibition, including local students, volunteers and clients at both charities. Using a variety of classic and digital mediums, the exhibition seeks to show the power of art to address and illuminate social issues.
The exhibition is free to attend and is open from Friday 25th October 4-7pm and Saturday 26th October 9-6pm at Black Chalk Studios. Please RSVP and share the Facebook event.
