Support the arts! OK, so that’s easy to say, but how? This weekend’s Arts In Motion mini-festival in Bournemouth Lower Gardens was the perfect example of how a beautiful part of our town could be made even more beautiful. So if you liked what you saw, tell your friends, tell your neighbours, and tell the council. We need more of this sort of thing.
The art on show was simply stunning and so creative. The concept of kinetic arts is simple – it means movement makes it beautiful. That’s something a lot of us in clubland can relate to and the festival fused art and music to illustrate this fact.
Artists on show had a unique opportunity to showcase their talents and what I liked best was the way it provoked conversation in everyone who passed it. Children were fascinated, adults were captivated. In show were 9 innovative sculptures from local artists Rebecca Newnham, Ivan Black, Greyworld London and Jim Bond.
What makes the event all the more impressive is that it was oranised by Final Year Arts and Events Management students at The Arts University at Bournemouth and in association with Dorset Visual Arts. This exhibition was a six-month journey for this group of international young professionals and I sincerely hope they have opened the door for many similar events.
