AboutDO ACTORS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS?
During his residency, Kennedy invites you into an informal conversation about how the visiting public use cultural establishments like The Tetley. Those conversations will influence interventions into the fabric of the building including sculptural installations, impromptu performances and text works.

Laura Dee Milnes
Friday 11th April between 6-8pm
Invited to participate in Rob Kennedy's production residency, Laura will perform an intervention between bodies and building and invite individuals to capture a moment with her within the fabric of The Tetley itself. Exploring the possibilities of collaborative compositions, several shared experiences between audience and artist will develop overnight into a multi-layered reframing of the site, which will remain visible for the rest of the weekend in a physical form and beyond into the future, in the digital realm. www.lauramilnes.com
Sign of the the Times
Bernadette Russell and Rob Kennedy
Saturday 19th April between 12-4pm
This one day public workshop Sign of the Times invites you to answer the question, âWhat do you want?' through the time-honoured medium of the placard, humble bearer of political protest and retail discount offers in our cities. Using the simple medium of the placard and one very open ended question, Rob and Bernadette will encourage people to discover something they wish to protest about, whether that be a need or desire, a proposal for or response to something, for a concrete thing or for something unrealisable. The placards will then be displayed tied to the railings fronting the Tetley building. Beyond the one day workshop, blank placards will be available at various points in the building so visitors can continue to add to the collection of desires creating something akin to roadside shrines, protest camps, special offers, strike action.
Keep an eye on the website and Twitter for further details of last minute interventions during Rob's residency.
