How To Be An Artist

a practical guide to impracticality

Thursday 20th August – 9.30pm

Are you an artist? Who decides who’s an artist? What is an artist anyway? How am I going to make my next show? Where’s next month’s rent money coming from? Are these questions all rhetorical or merely difficult to answer?

A collection of Forest Fringe artists come together to try and tell you some if not all of what they know about how to be an artist. An intimate one-off gathering to celebrate art and artists and demand more of both in spite of a government that seems to care for neither.

Whether you’re an artist or not, come along for a informal, anarchic night of songs, stories, practical exercises and dubious advice featuring Bryony Kimmings, Chris Thorpe, Deborah Pearson, Buzzcut Festival and more.
