The festive weekend will end with the annual Christmas tree lights switch-on in Queens Square on the Sunday.
videoclub is an agency working with film, video and digital culture. They believe that the challenging and poetic nature of artists’ film is perfectly placed to engage audiences hungry for visual and digital culture.
They support artists to develop new audiences and markets for their work by collaborating with UK and international arts institutions to:
- co-curate and produce exhibitions and screening programmes
- create showcasing, residency and commissioning opportunities
