Breaking News: In ROAMING ROOM Thurs 25th Aug 2016 6-8pm, Fri 26-Sat 27 12-6

This is the last of our residencies

THE END IS NIGH!

You are invited to:

Between something and nothing

EILIS KIRBY

at

ROAMING Room

on Thursday 25th August 6-8pm

Based in Bristol, Éilis Kirby is the sole proprietor of EAK Enterprises.

Her intelligently playful approach belies a profound underpinning of ideas, drawing together the visual, literature and the spoken word.

From the poetic to the pragmatic, the imaginative to the instructive and the intangible to the informational,

EAK aims to bring a fresh eye to the everyday, the overlooked and the discarded. Its ambition being to draw attention to the material

and to the power of things, and thus promote of a more questioning and thoughtful approach to living, through the disruption of fixed lines of thought.

Our hope is that this will lead to greater personal fulfilment and, perhaps, eventually, the reversal of climate change and world peace.

We would be delighted if you can come.
