Ideas Test @ No.34 is our arts and creative programme taking place at our business start-up and creative venue in Sittingbourne High Street. Via free and ticketed drop-in workshops, performances, screenings, exhibitions and events Ideas Test @ No.34 offers opportunities for people across the Swale & Medway area to get involved in creativity in ways they choose.
Curated and commissioned public events at our High Street location encourage local people to drop in and have a go at something creative, many of whom become regular visitors.
Programming our events in parallel with other community and voluntary organisations such as Age UK, Sittingbourne FM and Swale Greenspaces; and celebratory events such as Sittingbourne Carnival and Swale in Bloom means we develop even wider links across the community.
Our monthly artist exhibition in the Stairwell & Window Gallery offers a platform to artists we have supported in the past through Small Experiments funding and highlights the strength and diversity of contemporary arts practice across Swale & Medway. By offering artist workshops in conjunction with their exhibition, Stairwell Gallery artists are able to develop their practice and build a stronger relationship with their audience.
