Outside In

TUES 17 JAN 10.30AM - 6.00PM
WED 18 JAN 10.00AM - 2.00PM

Outsider Art, ‘Art Brut’ (or Raw Art) are all terms used to describe works produced by artists often unschooled in a formal art education; artists perhaps producing work for their own world and enjoyment or obeying an inner compulsion.

Theatre & Performance Design and Technology students have explored the secret and the overt, the obsessive and the cathartic, covering continents and centuries to present 3D designs and installations inspired by the works of these fascinating artists.

Please join us in the George Harrison Workshop Studio, as we welcome the Outside In.

Created by first-year Theatre & Performance Design and Technology students.

Suitable for ages 12+.

COVID-19 Guidance

Our procedures are subject to review, in line with current government health guidance.

We want your visit to be safe, comfortable and enjoyable, so we have the following in place:

What we are doing:

  • Enhanced cleaning
  • All rooms have ventilation; natural, mechanical or both. In rooms containing air handling, the system has been configured to supply 100% fresh air directly from outside (no recycled air).
  • Encouraging E-tickets
  • Cashless campus

What we’d like you to do:

  • We recommend you wear a face covering where close contact with others is unavoidable.
  • If you start to display any symptoms associated with Covid-19, please follow the latest Government advice. If you tell us in advance of the start of the performance that you have got Covid symptoms or have tested positive by emailing, we will offer to refund the cost of your ticket.
  • Please apply high hygiene standards throughout your visit.
  • Please follow any instructions from our team as they are there to help and make us all safe.
  • Please look out for pre-visit emails as these may contain the most up to date information for your visit. 

If government guidance changes or we need to respond to a regional, local or institutional rise in case numbers we may have to reintroduce some safety measures, such as:

  • Proof of a negative test result
  • Proof of COVID vaccination status
  • Face coverings to be worn while in our buildings (unless exempt)

If any of these changes are necessary, we will advise you before the event, via the email address you provided during the booking process. If new government restrictions are imposed (or local conditions change) we may need to move bookings onto a socially distanced seating plan or cancel this event at short notice. If this happens, we will not be able to refund any expenses you have incurred relating to attending the event (such as travel or accommodation costs), so please consider this when making your travel arrangements.
