The Stove committee have been pushing forward on all fronts over the past year and we would like to invite you to a catch-up meeting on Wednesday 5th of September at 7pm at The Stove building.
At this meeting we will report back on progress with the building and projects and discussing the future structure of the Stove as an arts organisation. he Stove began as an open invitation and opportunity for D+G practitioners we’d like to discuss ideas we have for sustaining this ethos into the future and are eager to involve as many of you as possible in these discussions.
Some of you may also be aware that we have been commissioning artworks to accompany a 2 week long programme of public arts activity in and around Dumfries at the start of November. Artist Mike Inglis was award one of the Stove’s Inbetween commissions; Mike is one of Scotland’s leading street-artists and will present a short illustrated talk on 5th September about his practice and what he has planned for the November events.
We will also be introducing a two day symposium we are presenting in November where invited speakers will be addressing issues surrounding the identity of contemporary market towns in the UK: ‘Place Sustainability and Future Culture’ in Dumfries on 8 + 9 November 2012.
We hope you can join us, if so please RSVP via [email protected] with the text ‘ Stove Meeting Wed 5th Sep’ in the subject line.
