JANUARY:: #HEX1 :: 100/100+ ::
Opening Night :: Thursday 17th January

Come to our first exhibition for 2013! 

Opens 6 - 8pm :: all welcome
#HEX1 :: 100/100+
The 100/100 series was an idea spawned out of uncertainty. My exploration of graffiti and street art had lead to an interesting place, but the path ahead was unclear. I decided one of the things I was missing so badly from my time at university was a deadline, and thus I imposed one of my own. I set out to make a sketch a day for 100 days, from the 17th June to 24th September.
The result is an honest and unedited reflection of my creative energy through this time. The sketches demonstrate the moments of inspiration, of apathy, of intoxication. Some days I would do up to 6, many days I did none. I stretched in new, strange directions, fumbling for the one in which my work should move. Viewing the series as a group, I think it answers many of the questions I asked of myself when I began. Which is all I could ask of 100 pieces of paper. - #HEX1

Exhibition continues to 13th February 2013  
Weekly events

:: Mondays & Tuesdays :: Happiness Sessions at the reading room ::
Monday evening, 6pm - 7:30 - Laughing Room
Could your life be any more awesome? An hour a week of serious laughter would almost certainly make it so. Laughter warm ups, laughing hard, and rolling around on the floor laughing are all guaranteed. Come along, even if you've never laughed before, we will make it easy for you. Mental training is like any other form of training - do it once, and it will be fun and have some benefits in your life. Do it often and you become fit, healthy and skillful. Do it often, and you wont be able to stop laughing.
Tuesday  afternoon, 12:30 - 1:15pm - Tuesday lunch destress session
Take 30 minutes of your lunch hour to completely let go with a guided deep relaxation. Bring your workmates and friends.
