Join RSA Fellows and guests to learn about the C2C Artists in Residence programme, and discussing the role of art in social change

It’s been over two years since our last Northampton get-together. This is an opportunity to restart the network and to learn about the C2C Artists in residence programme, which came out of the RSA network.

Mingle over drinks, meet other Fellows, and hear from artists about their work and the role that creativity has played in their journey. There’ll also be opportunity to discuss what’s next for the RSA Northampton network, so bring your ideas! Whether you’re new to the RSA, or you’ve been an active part of the network for years, or not a Fellow, please join us for an evening of connections and learning – this event is free and open to all.

Artists in Residence is a community-based arts project, which has brought together four artists to work in collaboration with women who are or have been in a variety of vulnerable situations. The group has made art together outdoors at C2C's Allotment Garden and indoors at C2C’s Women’s Centre.

The exhibition can be viewed at NN gallery at the Vulcan Centre in Northampton, 26 – 28th May. More details here:

Taking part in RSA in-person events  

We've been looking forward to finally being able to meet together in person. But of course recognise it is important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone.   

We aim to have assurances from all venues that they will have basic COVID-safety processes in place. 

We’re asking all attendees of events to be respectful of personal space, to be mindful of others preferences in regards to social distancing and to respect those that are wearing face coverings. 

To participate in the event, you will need to register for a ticket so we can make sure we have an up-to-date list of those who plan on attending. This is for capacity purposes.   

We request that all attendees evaluate their own health and that of those they’re in close contact with. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home and to cancel your Eventbrite ticket if you are no longer able to join the event.   

Given the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, please always check your latest national Government guidance in addition to following our baseline guidance enclosed here. If guidelines do change, the event may be cancelled at short notice. 

If you have any questions, or to let us know of any access requirements or reasonable adjustments you require, please email: [email protected]
