Palace Theatre Poster Project – Artist Call Out II CLOSES 6 JULY
Calling artists, designers, (trouble) makers, shakers and doers to design your own theatre poster for an International Paste Up Project featuring in the Troublemakers’ Festival.
Following on from Theatre Lane Project we are now working on an amazing project that will feature in Swansea, U.K. The Palace Theatre is currently sitting dormant on High Street but, once, it was filled with people watching the Charlie Chaplin on stage. THe history of this building is lustrious and inspiring. This heritage theatre situtaed on a unique corner location deserves a resurrection and we want you to start with making a theatre poster for this temporary art project.
Posters will be printed and pasted up as temporary artworks along High Street as part in coalition with the Troublemakers’ Festival in July 2017.
We would like posters to advertise shows, imagining what could have, did or might in the future happen at The Palace. The posters will be raise the profile of the building and the campaign to save
The history of 156 High Street is rich with interesting and significant cultural stories. Did you know it was the first place in Wales to show a silent film?
This is a chance to draw on the rich cultural history of The Palace and the amazing potential for its future to create your very own poster.
