About the Event
The Take a Seat project is a collaboration between Kenilworth Arts Festival, students from Kenilworth School and various businesses around the town. Inspired by Nicola Davies’ poem, The Day the War Came, and the subsequent #3000chairs campaign, for this project, students have devised a series of interactive installations, based around the themes of journeys, migrations and change.
The students’ artwork, video installations, stories, objects and poems will be on display in shops and public spaces around the town throughout the festival week (18th – 23rd September). Festival goers will be invited to embark upon their own journeys through this thought-provoking art trail; to pause, ‘take a seat’ and be inspired by the original work that these students have produced.
