GRAVEL_PV_audience
Last night was the launch of GRAVEL notes from the other side of the fence, a show of residency projects at Habitation, the North West Cambridge Art Programme. The site is open to the public this Friday and Saturday (29-30th May) with film screenings and presentations by residency artists. nwcambridgeart.com

Gravel Hill Farm stands with one foot in its previous life, the other in its new role as a centre for an emerging community with both new and re-purposed farm buildings: barns have become performance halls, the farm house is now offices, and a cottage is used as artist accomodation. New buildings include offices, a community centre, and artist studios. There’s new concrete, pea-shingle, roads, footpaths, cycle racks, fencing and planting but much of the original farm infrastructure remains. The layout is still farm-like, there are feed troughs in the barn, cattle railings, five bar gates, barbed wire and straw bales. Read More >
