About the event
Join us at our first event in the Chapel Ash underpass, Wolverhampton, since we started working on the site as part of our ROUNDABOUT project.
Funded by Arts Council England, Wolverhampton City Council and Art Gallery, and the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity fund, the ROUNDABOUT project has, so far, seen residency artist David Checkley work to create sculptural interventions across the site.
Now, it is time to reveal the first element of ROUNDABOUT which will be Light.
On 17th February 2024, we will unveil the Checkley’s work and mark the end of the first residency with live performances of music, poetry, spoken word and drumming from West Midlands artists.
The artists performing are:
· Ajay Pall | Spoken Word
· Kupid the King | Rap
· Bones | Poetry
· Fallon Burnett | Poetry
· Antonio Jhalli | Dhol Player
· Bash | DJ
The event will be themed around light, journeys, and finding our way as inspired by the work of David Checkley, and the other performers and artists are repsonding to this theme. Visitors will have the chance to explore Checkley’s new artwork in the site and enjoy the space for the first time since the project began.
RSVP, save the date, and sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear more about the event and its upcoming performers.
