Join us and Mr X Stitch at The Pad, Bedford for a Screening of ‘Art Party’ – the Bob and Roberta Smith & Tim Newton film that predicted the demise of Gove. If you believe in arts education for all, like indie cinema and fancy having a go at some subversive socio-political needlework then come along and join the Art Party on the 21st August.

Part documentary, part road movie and part political fantasy, Art Party champions the importance of art and its place in education and modern politics. A kaleidoscopic mix of performance, artist interviews and imagined scenes, Art Party features work and comment by artists as diverse as Cornelia Parker, John Smith, Haroon Mirza, Jeremy Deller and Jessica Voorsanger and original music by Flameproof Moth, the Grubby Mitts, the Ken Ardley Playboys and The Fucks.

Get there early for a little subversive needlework from Mr X Stitch himself who has made 4 slogans for us to stitch depending on what our GCSE results were and stick around for the art party after party!

Opinion: Which tribe are you?

As Grayson Perry has observed, “most people want to fit in with their tribe in some way or another, so they give off signals, whether it’s with their clothes, their behavior, their car, their whatever, and gain status . . . and the signals are an unconscious display of who you are and where you
