Islington Mill Art Academy will be setting up a temporary free art school in Berlin later this month from 27th May till 8th June 2008. We will be working from an art and music space in Kreuzberg called Westgermany (133 Skalitzer Str.) We are inviting Berliners to join us in a number of activities that we will be organising during our residency there. If you would like to get involved, please email us.
A number of groups and individuals from Manchester (including the Academy) have taken on a year long lease on a flat in Kreuzberg, Berlin so we hope to be spending quite a bit of time in the city over the coming year. We see this as an opportunity to make some strong links between Manchester and Berlin and to create dialogue between artists working in both cities.
