The Inventors will invite the people of Portsmouth to explore new ways of making through a series of free workshops, exhibitions and events. The project is inspired by Aspex's Summer 2018 exhibition by innovative artist Will Cruickshank, who creates sculptures and other artworks by using homemade ‘Heath Robinson’ machines and jigs.
Three artists will be commissioned to act as inventors, developing new work for presentation at Victorious Festival, to be seen by over 150,000 people.
The Inventors will be assisted by ten students (Project Ambassadors) from the Faculty of the Creative & Cultural Industries at the University of Portsmouth - enabling their further creative and professional development.
There are various opportunities for businesses to support The Inventors which can be found here.
