Creatives Unite

On Thursday 1st August, from 6pm to 8pm, Doug Harman Photography will be hosting the first of Creative Meet ups – Creatives Unite – at Stag Coffee on Ashford High Street.

The meet ups are for like minded creatives of all disciplines and the aim is to create a platform for making connections; to share information; offer expertise; collaborate; learn what’s out there; find out what’s lacking and what we could do to make it easier to communicate and find information, including funding streams, exhibitions, competitions, etc.

The cost of tickets is £5 and you will be offered a light buffet. Stag Coffee serves alcoholic drinks as well soft drinks and teas and coffees.  Please buy your tickets as soon as possible from the link below.

We look forward to meeting you all there and finding out more about the work you do and how we can help each other grow.

Tickets for the event can be purchased HERE.

 

 

Doodle helps young artists

Bauhaus Cafe CIC was pleased to be donated a doodle by none other than local celebrity Mr Doodle, Sam Cox.  The doodle was created live in public and is entitled ‘Doughnut Dance’.

Sam said: “I was very pleased to be able to take part in the art auction.  I created my doodle live so that people could see the process of my piece from start to finish.  When I was younger I sometimes doodled in the spaces that Betsy (Bauhaus Cafe CIC CEO) looked after young artists.  It was a helpful thing for me to have a space to practice some of my larger scale work.  I hope that this doodle can help create some funds for the young artists in Ashford to have opportunities in the future”.

Mr Doodle’s piece is now on display at Stag Coffee in Ashford High Street and will go to the person who donates the highest amount to our fundraiser.  Your money will help Ashford Young Artists organise more exhibitions, frame their work and invest in promotional and art materials.  Our long term aim is to highlight the quality of art in our town.  Young artists are often not taken seriously at the start of their careers, but more often than not, they are extremely talented and have great potential.  Ashford no longer has an art gallery to represent this talent so we are working towards creating one.  At the very least, we want to have pop up exhibitions appearing around the town centre and public art to engage and involve local residents. We can’t do that without your help.

Here is the link to our fundraiser so please be generous and help us achieve our target.

Ideally, the young artists are looking for someone with a passion for the arts who could be a patron, a champion of the arts locally and work closely with Bauhaus Cafe CIC to create opportunities that aren’t presently available.  If you are that person, and are passionate about our cause, please email us info@bauhauscafe.co.uk.

If you would like to see some of the work by young artists, please pop into Stag Coffe Ashford High Street until 22nd June.  If you are free on 20th June from 5pm to 7pm, please join us at the Private Viewing of the art and meet the artists, talk to them and maybe even buy one of their pieces.
