Schedule for Sunday 6 May:

11.30am

Colin Higginson, I would not fail in pleasing you

This new work, derived from an interest in images and characters from film, uses repetition and stillness to draw out layers of meaning. The performances evolve over the course of the weekend as each hour-long iteration builds on the last.

12–2pm

Activity: Spike Design Table Tennis Challenge

Members of Spike Design are known throughout the building for their impressive ping pong skills. Join them for a friendly match.

12–4pm

Situations

Visit the production office of award-winning art producers Situations to find out the latest on London 2012 Cultural Olympiad project Nowhereisland. Conceived by artist Alex Hartley, this new island nation is one of the primary public art projects to be seen in the South West this summer. Arriving in Weymouth on 25th July, the Arctic island and its mobile Embassy museum will make a 500 mile sea journey around the coast arriving in Bristol 7-9 September. Become a citizen, meet the Nowhereisland Ambassadors and see the premiere of Yoke Illustration's animation for the Nowhereisland Resident Thinker programme.
