This Saturday 12th of August you are all invited to come to Boulevard Mad Yard Art final event; a walk though the neighbourhood.
This walk is all about the Boulevard area, its creativity and its capacity for self-organisation. We will stop by different places with local initiatives and hold live conversations, debates about Boulevard, its past, its present and its possible futures. Boulevard Mad Yard Art produced decorations that convert the street into the site of wild insects and plants, interactive musical instruments, furniture made out of the refuse found right here in our neighbourhood. But more importantly this is not about ‘art as decoration’, it is not about ‘spectacle’, this is about applying a playful experimental attitude to our most pressing issues, about the hopes of changing the way things are in a profound way.
We will meet in front of St. Mathew’s Church on Boulevard (HU3 2TD), close to Alnaby Rd. at 10.30am. This is where our walk starts. We can’t tell you yet exactly what route we’ll take. You’ll have to come and see.
The event is free and suits all ages. Children have to come accompanied by their parents. It is a collaboration between artists Anna Coromina, Aviv Kruglanski and many neighbours and organizations in the Boulevard area.
