Magic Acorns is very excited to announce a successful Arts Council England bid for their In-Between Spaces project in Great Yarmouth.
In-Between Spaces will take place at PRIMEYARC (an empty department store) in Great Yarmouth this spring. Artists Charlotte Arculus, Sophie Fox, Abby Page and Oliver Payne will embark on a two week residency creating immersive experiences for families with very young children. Working with video artist Lewis Wickwar and lighting artist Tim Tracey, the residency will be followed by a window exhibition viewable to the public from Markets Gates shopping centre.
We'll start our residency at PRIMEYARC in Great Yarmouth. Our artists will develop the installation and work with the emerging artists we've recruited.
We'll open the installation to invited groups of families to experience. The artists will facilitate improvised, open-ended exploration led by young children to create journeys through the work.
We'll use our work so far to create an In-Between Spaces window exhibition at PRIMEYARC and an online digital gallery.

We'll be running an online networking event with a focus on our learning and experiences from the project. This will bring together artists, educators and cultural & social organisations to build a community of practice.
We'll be running three bitesize CPD sessions online for artists and educators.
