This month’s Nicer Tuesdays will take place at Downstairs at Mother and we’ll be exploring the world of satire. We’ve invited some great speakers who have combined their creative skills with a sharp sense of humour to provide insightful and down right funny social commentaries.
Speakers are award-winning political cartoonist Banx, whose gags have appeared everywhere from Private Eye and Punch to his current daily column in The Financial Times, and fine artist Barnaby Barford who will be talking to us about his unique ceramic narratives which fuse dark humour and irony to draw a portrait of our contemporary lives.
Also joining us will be visual artist and comedian Miriam Elia, whose practice continually challenges the boundary between comedy and fine art, and co-founder of The LOCO London Comedy Film Festival Jonathan Wakeham who will explain why they’ve chosen satire as the theme for next year’s festival.
Nicer Tuesdays takes place on Tuesday October 29 – get your tickets now to join us in our exploration of this long-running artistic inspiration. Also please note the change of venue!!
