On the evening of Thursday 30th April, The Fleeting Arms arts community space will play host to a playground of sculpture, installation and film. INTREPID will be a fully interactive exhibition, encouraging 'big kids' of all ages to come and engage with contemporary art works in an exciting manner.

About

TOAST is a collective of current fine art students from York St John University, eagers to see a rise in artist-led initiatives and events across the quietened York art scene. The collaborative exhibition has emerged from a combined interest of the artists to explore the relationship between viewer and art work, requesting a transition away from the constrained viewing nature of the typical modern gallery space. 

The one night exhibition will be a fundraising event for East African Playgrounds, a charity with whom two of the students will be spending the coming summer building a playground at a school in Uganda. The organisation pictures an ideal world in which all children have access to areas where they can explore, learn, develop and play. INTREPID places an emphasis on the same act of play that the charity seeks to make possible for children in Uganda, demonstrating not only the importance of play but the universal desirfe to experience the world through play.

The exhibition will feature works by several of the University's young artists; including Helen Parker, Lottie Walsh, Uriah Gabriel, Joe Jackson, Harriet Sutcliffe and Reece Chopping.
