ARTi Architecture Festival
An opportunity to engage local people
through the activities across the weekend with the themes and ideas of London
Open House and the Great Place Programme. ARTification managed,
coordinated and oversaw workshops in the Park Royal venues providing
opportunities to engage a wider audience in the London Open House project.
ACE cafe Biker / motor & building creative activities were successful, appropriate and engaging.
Complemented by venue events on both days. Good numbers too with great
feedback from all.
Creative at Ace: “I really enjoyed the weekend and was delighted to get to
experience the ACE Cafe. We used the space in front of the stage as the cycles
on the stage drew people to us and encouraged them to have their photos
taken with the bikes. A colleague from the OPDC table on Sunday commented
that the Open House had not been advertised enough (he did not have many
people come over to his table). People really loved making the key rings and
by far the car number plates were the most popular. People spent time sharing
their stories. What interesting people came by. I really enjoyed this aspect. One
story of the Bauhaus Biker Head in a Hole': He's a man from Newcastle in his 70s.
He was there with his wife of 52 years. They met when he was a rocker and she
was a mod. They still ride a motorbike with her on the Queen seat. They were
showing their friends also from Newcastle the cafe for the first time; all four pals
The Collective activities were visually strong, engaging and thought-provoking
for participants with discussions around the concept of 'Smart Cities' & the
opportunity to incorporate their vision.
