Alexandra Arts was founded in 2010 by Norwegian Artist, Lotte Karlsen. Our team includes Arts Admin Extraordinaire, Karen Harrison, Designer and Campaigner, Amy Clancy, and Moving Image duo, Pablo Melchor and Bedos Mavanubu. In addition to a number of partners, we also work with volunteers and artists, throughout the year.
In the past, there have been two main strands to our activity; hosting happenings in the stunning Victorian, Grade 2-listed Alexandra Park between April-October; and, linking the Park with the wider community through a year-round educational arts programme, working mainly with schools and community groups in the local area.
In late Summer 2014, the newly restored Alexandra Park Pavilion was officially reopened which provided the opportunity to extend our programming throughout the year. During Autumn 2014 we curated Pankhurst in the Park; a free public programme of artist talks and installations which took place in and around the Park and Pavilion. Following its success, Alexandra Art's was awarded Arts Council funding to curate Pankhurst in the Park during Spring 2016. The first part of this programme concluded with our Spring Showdown on May 7, followed up with our extensive summer programming.
