Art Social ’14 is a four day arts and culture festival from pioneering charity and not-for-profit private members’ club, The House of St Barnabas. From Thursday 31st July, until Sunday 3rd August you’ll find an innovative programme of talks, interactive workshops and live music performances in the ornate surroundings of its’ 19th century chapel.

Acclaimed and emerging artists have been commissioned to produce visual and sonic installations throughout the Grade 1 listed Georgian town house. The three central artistic collaborations are; Patrick Murphy X Keaton Henson, Barby Asante X Tony Nwachukwu and Margot Bowman X Actress & Giganta. Their work will be exhibited at the House throughout August, around which the rest of the festival will revolve. Expect talks on subjects such as Art in the Public Realm, Digital Democracy: Art Online, Architecture and the City and more. The specially curated, ticketed events commence on Thursday and finish with a Open House, all day event on Sunday featuring family friendly activities, performances, talks and a tea party.

“Art Social ’14 is where The House of St Barnabas will bring its social and cultural mission together – we believe that to be socially progressive you should be culturally progressive – Art Social is a celebration of that mission,” states Nadra Shah, the Festival Director.
