Sneak peek highlights:
- Bean there - Who remembers rumpus rooms of the ‘70s? The Bean There exhibit comes complete with shag carpet and encourages participants like you to channel your inner hippie and embrace the serenity of past decades (feel free to Instagram it on the way out, we won’t judge). Faux fur vests, wide leg jeans, heart-shaped shades and high heel white boots welcome!
- Alice in Dumpsterland - “Every adventure requires a first step.” – Cheshire Cat, Lewis Carroll. Join a tea party with a twist. Made entirely from unwanted, upcycled materials this exhibit is sure to deliver a visually interesting and engaging space to socialize in.
- See your city in colour! Whether art is your dream, hobby, or profession, this is your chance to let your creative juices flow! Lend your hand to an oversized paint by number of the Kensington streetscape
