Clubhouse in Queen’s Park

About

Clubhouse is an ongoing project exploring the potential of collaborative art-making, set on two streets in Queen’s Park, Bedford. For Spring and Summer 2018 we are delivering a creative programme during school holidays, developed in collaboration with the residents of the two streets and in partnership with The Higgins, Bedford.

The project’s roots began with In Situ Cinema by Julie Myers and Maria Anastassiou. This pop-up filmmaking pilot project took place in summer 2016 on the two streets and was so successful that the artists returned in 2017 to develop the project further.

The result was Clubhouse – a year-long inter-generational filmmaking and creative programme co-created with lead artists Julie Myers and Maria Anastassiou, the residents and our commissions producing team Annie Bacon and Emily Evans.

Artists

Artist

Maria Anastassiou

Maria Anastassiou is an artist/filmmaker who uses analogue and digital media in moving image, social practice and curatorial projects. Her work is informed by experimental ethnographic approaches to documentary and structuralist film traditions. She is interested in the form and function of the filmmaking process as an entry point into responding to place, narratives, communities, individuals and other artists.

Artist

Julie Myers

Julie's practice responds to people and places by combining digital media (sound, photography, film, text) with publicly sited installations. She looks for accessible, everyday ways that people make sense of their environment through memory, personal experience and the representation of stories. She is interested in the relationship between real and electronic space: in contemporary cartography, social practice, developing projects that enable material generated by local communities to be experienced in public space.
