Tea in the Uncanny Valley

Milestone Trusts 'Expressions' group are presenting their latest exhibition at St Stephen's Café and Garden this October.

'Tea in the Uncanny Valley (and other weirdness)' is the latest collection from the group which is dedicated to increase inclusion and participation in the arts. The exhibition features the work of Milestones Trust's textile group and from individuals from the trust.

We will have a Big Draw event and Big Knit event, plus drawing workshops and a poetry evening. Expressions exhibitions are always more than just pictures on gallery walls.

The collection includes life size textile figures and a mix of graphic works in the Centrespace Gallery. It then extends into St Stephen's café and garden for outside works, including giant blackboards as part of the Big Draw month, plus Milestones' own Big Knit event, crafted by the Knitiffi group of local urban guerrilla knitters!

Amongst the attractions will be a Drawing Exchange event on Saturday 15 and 22 October, poetry sharing on Monday 17 October and performance of poetry on Friday 21 October, led by the Studio Upstairs writers group.

The collection will be exhibited at the Centrespace Gallery 15-19 October and at St Stephen's Café and Garden 15 -22 October.
