The Stove's Open House

From The Stove Network

Very exciting news from Stove central as we can announce that The Stove will be opening next month, with a series of events called Open House.

Open House is a series of very different events that will show the versatility of The Stove as a physical space and the ambition of the project for the town centre.

We kick off with the third annual Dumfries Music Conference on 24th and 25th April. As in previous years, DMC2015 will feature workshops, talks, film, live music, expert opinion and creative collaboration. Through a collection of brilliant partners and guests, we hope to educate, inspire and entertain. DMC2015 will mark the official opening of The Stove Building at 100 High Street. In celebration of this we are going to fill the entire building with colour, music and people. Full details will be made available here as they are announced!

On 28th April The Stove hosts Open Mouth – a day of spoken word, performance and cooking. Full details available here  Open Mouth is specially created and delivered for The Stove Network by Sarah IndigoEryl Shields and Open Jar Collective Produced in collaboration with Wigtown Festival Company
29th April sees House Warming – an open invite to come and see The Stove building, have a chat and make a T-shirt. From 6pm there will be a Stove Members Gathering, which will include a public bonfire, and Bannock making in the town square with Open Jar. More details available here.

At 6pm on Saturday 2nd May come to The Stove for the public launch of HAME, this is a specially commissioned film installation by artists Emma Dove and Mark Lyken. Lyken and Dove have been artists-in-residence with The Stove Network for 6 months, and during this time they have been researching the way people move away from D+G and return. Come along on 2nd May for the world premiere of the work, which will be partly broadcast outside on the High Street and partly inside The Stove. Full details will be announced shortly and be available here 

Every Tuesday starting 12th May you are invited to Drop-In @ The Stove – pop in for a brew and a blether about The Stove and the town…. what would you like to see The Stove doing? What are your ideas for the town centre? What would you like to do at The Stove? We’ll be open and we’d love to hear your ideas! Drop In will run from 12 noon till 6pm every Tuesday, so just drop in on your way past! More details available here
