Corn Exchange & New Greenham Arts

Whether in Newbury, or further afield, protest is never far from the headlines, and this is your chance to be part of it.

How does creativity inspire protest? How does protest inspire art? In April, Corn Exchange Newbury and New Greenham Arts in Berkshire hosts a month of exhibitions, talks, performances, screenings and debates on the topic of protest.

Includes talks from internationally acclaimed protest artists Noel Douglas and Peter Kennard, as well as music from Gracie Petrie and Sean Taylor.

Come and experience true life protest stories brought to life with The Cellist of Sarajevo and The Vocal Abolitionists, and keep your eye out for our film season announcement for screenings too.

Exhibition, October, forms the main part of this season - a documentary artwork at New Greenham Arts that explores how live networks represent protest.

Pop along to New Greenham Arts and add your own protest story to our huge wall timeline.
