Big Telly’s ‘Spring Chickens’ is a pioneering intergenerational programme, supporting communities to participate and engage in the theatre arts. Over the past six months, Big Telly has been working with a range of groups using objects to explore stories of identity, through moving sculpture, display and sound. Working with artist and inventor Paddy Bloomer, this Machinations project will culminate in the NI Science Festival with an exhibition of all the work done over the six month project.
Displaying all final sculptures including a 3D zoetrope, junk self-portraits and model box stories and lots more, the Machinations Exhibition will take place in one of Big Telly’s Creative Shops ‘pop-up’ spaces in the heart of town centres which aim to give communities a space to make something happen. With activities for children and adults all day come along, explore our journey and have a go yourself!
