AWOL Studios are back in the building!

Wednesday, May 12th, 2021

Welcome back one and all and for those who never stopped working, what a strange old year it’s been, eh?

We hope everyone’s safely retained an appropriate level of sanity to go out their usual business and that the juices are once again flowing. We’d really love to see / hear what you’ve been doing through lockdown to fill the time (how ever boring or bizarre!) and the ways you’ve found to pass the time.

With case numbers going down and a general feeling of positivity on the rise we thought it was about time to start looking ahead and as always, an AWOL Open Studios is on the horizon. This year we’re thinking November might be a good month for a pre-Winter warmer; giving everyone time to find their new groove and prepare. As always we rely on your networks to help us spread the word and we’ll be promoting from all our social media platforms news of your artistic endeavours.

As always there’ll be a Resident’s Exhibition (co-curated by that dastardly 5th floor duo Jude Wainwright and Sara Hindhaugh) and an independent showcase of Comme Ca Art creatives on the 5th floor (more details on themes to follow but if you’re struck with inspiration again, please get in touch!).

If anyone has any other ideas they’d like to contribute then we’re always open to discussion, just email david@awol-studios.co.uk (or grab him as you see him doing his rounds). Until then we’ll just say how grateful we are that this awesome community still remains and congratulate you all for weathering the biggest storm of the century.

See you all very soon!
