Art Gallery Take Over in Carlisle

Carlisle has made it on to the Radar again, with The Art Gallery Take Over at Tullie House, this Thursday the 16th May, 7pm till 10 - as part of the Museums at Night festival. The evenings events line up is shaping up like this:

"For one night only, we’re taking over the big empty space of the Tullie House Art Gallery, and letting the adults have all the creative fun whilst enjoying a cocktail or two.

Digital Artist Adam Clarke will be helping participants turn the walls of the gallery into an interactive digital Cumbrian landscape.  Powered by the popular game Minecraft, this projected digital world will also be available remotely - participants can bring their own portable devices to the event and people from all over the world will be able to contribute to our digital space.
For a historical twist, our Curator of Archaeology will be on hand to supervise the digital recreation of Carlisle’s Roman fort, and for inspiration provide handling objects from our Roman collections.
And as if all that isn’t enough, we’ll be bringing a whole new meaning to life drawing with our Fancy Dress Life Drawing area. Dress up in a variety of costumes or bring your own, be the models or develop your drawing skills.
If drawing or digital creations aren’t your thing, there are simple hands on paper crafts in our chill out areas that can be enjoyed with a drink or two from the Tullie House Pop Up bar.  Music will be provided by DJs Paolo Di Liberto (Thin White Duke Resident) and Leeroy Smith who will be playing a set of deep house and nu-disco throughout the evening. "
It sounds like a trip across the border is most definitely in order, tickets can be bought at the door or booked online - for more info head to the Tullie House website
