Ongoing drop-in activities for all ages
Have you ever felt like something wasn’t fair, verging on criminal or was just plain outrageous? From the trivial to serious, artists Ivan Thorley and Caroline Bowman from Puppets with Guts invite you to archive a story about people behaving badly.
For each exhibition, Pump House Gallery invites visitors to drop-in to the Project Space and explore ideas through hands-on activities. Alongside the exhibition Each fighting its own little battle in happy ignorance, artists Ivan Thorley and Caroline Bowman have created an interactive display in the Project Space in response to the novel It’s a Battlefield by Graham Greene. Use objects and puppets to create your own crime scenes. As characters are moved, manipulated and rearranged over the course of the project, join us as we investigate who decides what is right and wrong?
Upcoming family workshops
Every other Sunday from 12 – 4pm this ongoing set of activities is animated during free drop-in family workshops. Explore, uncover and interpret crime scenes created by the week’s gallery visitors on our unique interactive crime scene canvasses through activities including puppetry, creative writing, drawing and improvisation games.
