The silliest place in London is opening to the public for the LFA!
The Bureau Of Silly Ideas, a renowned outdoor arts company located in the iconic railway arches just behind Brixton station, is opening its workshop and performance spaces to the public.
Come from 5pm for a wander through the Bureau and see 20 years of outdoor arts history on display throughout the site. Peer into the workshop and watch our engineers as they work on this summer's incredible festival activations, and meet the artists that bring these works of art to the streets. You’ll even get the chance to get hands-on and drive one of our robots!
At 6 PM join us for drinks at the Silly Bar as Artistic Director Roger Hartley delivers a fascinating talk on the impact of art in activating public spaces and building community. He’ll also chat about data capture for evidencing the impact of public art in real time, and how a new technology we call ‘monARTing’ is a breakthrough for the sector.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of the Bureau of Silly Ideas and experience the innovation of outdoor art and engineering.
