Amazing Arts Picnic

Here are photographs of this year’s Cubitt Arts Picnic on Islington Green: Artists Ania Bas and Lucy Steggals who are both working on our Saturday Socials programme devised gazing and drawing activities whilst musicians Neil Luck and Benedict Taylor interpreted and goaded the pace and shape of marks made. Counterpoint Dance responded to the musicians, drawers and members of the public through poise and playful performance. And the Positive Collective created beautiful placards and a rowdy parade of positivity.

Over 160 over people took part as well as many members of the public!

The Business Design Centre very kindly donated funding towards this event, and we are also grateful to Bellanger and the Hummingbird Bakery for donating beautiful cakes. The event is part of a year-long programme Saturday Socials, funded by Islington Giving.
