First Friday

The next First Friday will be on September 1st, in the Garden Room at Dartington Space. Our guest artist isn’t really a guest at all. art.earth’s Director Richard Povall will talk about plans for the coming year and invite a discussion about where art.earth should go next and whether there are other ways to provide support for artists and creation. Hopefully some of the other art.earth Directors will be there as well.

First Fridays happen (surprise!) on the first Friday of every month, except January. First Fridays is a gathering place for artists or anyone interested in the arts, an opportunity to share food and talk. Each month, after lunch, there is an informal presentation of work in progress by one or two artists who may be local or from far away.

You can check out details on our events listing on Facebook.

You don’t need to let us know if you’re coming –  just bring some food to share. Only bring enough for a few people, otherwise we have far too much!

These events are held at Dartington Hall, but the precise venue may vary, so do check the calendar before coming.  All are welcome (any age). Most venues are wheelchair/buggy accessible.

Get directions to Dartington Hall. Most months we’ll meet in the Garden Room at Dartington Space, which is relatively easy to find. Park in the main car park at Dartington then walk DOWN the hill until you see the large blue SPACE sign. Walk down towards the buildings until you reach the end. We are upstairs.

Sometimes (check on Facebook) we hold First Friday in Studio 30, which is opposite the old Aller Park School building. To find it, from the main car park, look up the hill and take the first right (this is Park Road). Follow until the road forks, and bear right. Walk down towards the end. You’ll see the car park (which is likely full) and the old Aller Park building. Opposite this is the Hex/Gym and Studio 30 is the first door in the left as you go in. Unless it’s particularly windy, we’ll put the art.earth banner outside to help guide you.
