Fri 16 – Sun 25 Nov, daily
Launch event: Fri 16 Nov, 7pm
Beer Glass exhibition: 12pm ’til late, throughout the festival, along Kirkgate
Through the beer glass lens of the Public House, Etheridge & Persighetti explore visions of future social landscapes by focusing on the enduring role of pubs as important places of social gathering, intergenerational exchange, entertainment, (hi)story telling, and activism.
During Compass Festival, a special edition of 500 beer glasses bearing diagrams, maps, conversational fragments, and invitations to explore the rich landscape of Leeds pubs, will be distributed to a selection of pubs and bars along Kirkgate. A map of participating pubs and further details of the launch event will be available soon on this page.
In a participatory launch performance the artists will initiate a series of live conversations inspired by the inscriptions on the glasses, bringing to the table special guests with a range of interests in the relationships between people, place and beer in Leeds. Come to Crowd of Favours on Friday 16 Nov, join the conversations, and see into the future!
