Nov 21st Influx Press Bristol book launch 7.30pm The Arts House, 108A Stokes Croft, Bristol BS1 3RU

‘Having spent three years in the early 1990s occupying properties and protesting in Claremont Road, east London, poet Paul Hawkins maps the run-off, rackets and resistance along the route of the proposed M11 Link Road. Using the voices of Dolly Watson and many others in avant-garde experimental text and lo-fi collage, he explores place, waste and dissent; the stake the Thatcher/Major Tory government was driving into the heart of the UK.’

Oct 29th – Nov 21st Temple Church Bristol Sanctum

IMG_0482

Reading from Place Waste Dissent at #SanctumBristol

This autumn, a remarkable structure is rising up from within the bombed out remains of Temple Church in Bristol. For 24 days, this 14th century site is being transformed into an intimate gathering place in which to hear the city like never before.

Chicago-based artist Theaster Gates was invited by Bristol arts producer, Situations, to create his first public project in the UK as part of Bristol 2015 European Green Capital.

The artist has sought out discarded and dormant materials from former places of labour and religious devotion across Bristol to build an intimate and distinctive temporary structure at Temple Church. From 6pm on Thursday 29th October, Sanctum will host a continuous programme of sound over 552 hours until Saturday 21st November, sustained by performers, musicians and bands, spoken word artists and the visiting casts of theatre productions in Bristol.

You will be able to enter Sanctum day and night, but the schedule will always remain secret. You won’t know who you are about to hear. Capacity is limited, but if you’d like to guarantee a time to visit, you can reserve an entry time here.
