Expressions Festival of Creativity 2012

Venue: Paintworks Event Space

A stunning arts exhibition complete with workshops designed to bring out the creativity of visitors as well as showcasing some amazing installations and visual artwork from the artists of Milestones Trust.

Wednesday 18th to Sunday 22nd April. Free entry.

This year’s event explores the fascinating landscapes of the subconscious. A sense of carnival pervades as you enter the ‘funhouse’ and discover the ‘Museum of Me’. Dreams blur into reality with visual art, textiles, film and sculpture. At Expressions you can touch, smell, hear and walk inside the art, giving you an all-encompassing experience of the artist’s world.

The festival will incorporate a conference and a range of events and workshops, including circus skills, reading, drawing, writing, drama and sound. Our famous covert knitting group, Knitiffi, may also have something up their sleeves...

Expressions has been running since 2009, attracting thousands of visitors from around the region and making the arts accessible and interactive for everyone. It is organised by Milestones Trust, with work from service users, staff and affiliated organisations. Come along and enjoy this colourful free event!
