Links Round-Up: October Half Term!

It’s looking to be a whirlwind week ahead of us! The British Art Show is now open and in full swing, GameCity kicks off tonight, exhibitions are springing up left right and centre – yes, I think Creative October is progressing nicely thanks…

As part of that, Sideshow, the complementary fringe cousin of the British Art Show, has commissioned three live review shows covering all the art happening in Nottingham at the moment.  The first of these shows is tonight, at the Tethervision Studio, Huntingdon Street. If you want to be part of the live studio audience, book your free place online; if you’re a little camera shy, then don’t worry, as the show will be available for free on Tethervision afterwards.

Also kicking off tonight with their official launch is Nottingham’s annual GameCity festival. GameCity is quickly establishing itself as the UK’s premier family-friendly games-as-culture event, with such delights this year as Mario’s birthday tea party, Pac-Notts (live Pac-Man through our streets), Lego stop-motion animation masterclasses, a spy party invitation, and a demonstration of game designer Keita Takahashi’s plans for his playground at Woodthorpe Park. Phew. For the schedule, clicky here – GameCity 5 runs from tomorrow morning through until Saturday.

But wait! We’re not finished yet. The New Art Exchange has got a series of events on this week, to coincide with their British Art Show exhibition and the October half-term. For the full listings, have a look at our community site. Events kick off from 11am this morning! Busy busy…
