ACA is delighted to announce its success in being awarded an Arts Council England grant to deliver its ambitious programme entitled As Above So Below which will mark the organisation’s 20th year.
This programme will bring together an exciting mix of artists and non-arts experts to explore man’s relationship to planet earth from 3 standpoints; above, on and below ground. This project has been given an exciting dimension through ACA’s collaboration with the Allen Valleys Landscape Partnership who will be providing an observatory and planetarium at ACA premises later in 2015.
ACA’s context for this project stems from the human conditions of curiosity and ambition which prevent us from resting on what we see, understand and achieve. In the belief that more is to be found beyond recognised horizons, we advance our ability to navigate and travel, constantly scrutinising expanding distances above our head and below our feet, to evolve a better understanding of our relative position.
Over the coming months ACA will be making announcements for its programme of artists opportunities, residencies and public events.
