City Running is a late night arts intervention where the host city becomes a playground for artists. It turns the city into an artistic laboratory, a vibrant mix of community and experimentation.
How it Works
City Running Artistic Director, Rowena Easton, works closely with the host organisation to curate a group of artists from a range of practices and career levels.
On the night of the event, the City Runners gather at the host venue – a gallery or public space. After dark, they are given only 3 hours to go out into the city and return to the venue and create a piece of work inspired by their experiences.
They then present the work (live art/photography/music etc.) to their peers and a public audience.
The process acts as a professional development for individuals to nurture creative networks within cities.
