The Library of Ideas: Creative Use of The British Library
Discover how the British Library can help you create and develop your own artistic projects. #Becomingeducational is passing on this invitation…
Are you an early-career artist or student looking for inspiration?
Undercurrent Theatre is hosting this chance to meet curators, get up close to some of the collections and discover how you can use the Library to develop your own artistic projects.
The British Library holds a wealth of materials which are increasingly being used as inspiration for artists and creatives alike. Use this opportunity to find out more about the Library, how to access the Library’s collections, how to research and develop your own artistic projects using the collections as sites of inspiration and to begin an exchange of ideas.
The afternoon will be hosted by Undercurrent Theatre, the first Associate Theatre Company of the British Library, funded by Arts Council England.
In 2016 Undercurrent partnered with the British Library for their sell-out theatre production Calculating Kindness which was inspired by material from the Library’s contemporary scientific archives.
The event is FREE however advance booking is required: https://www.bl.uk/events/the-library-of-ideas-creative-use-of-the-british-library
As you may know, the British Library has a collection of over 150 million items ranging from manuscripts and magazines to a sound archive and drawings.
All of this is available to the public however accessing the library is not easy… This event is designed to break down barriers and give early-career artists the tools and confidence to access the materials in the British Library.
The British Library would be very grateful for any support *you* could give in helping to get the word out; could you include this event on a newsletter, or post on your intranet, or simply share this event with people you know?
