The Library Project

Tue 3rd December 2013
Library of Birmingham

Haworth + Hayhoe are installing a miniature interactive library and hosting daily bookbinding workshops. Your completed book will be shelved and catalogued as part of our library, after which your book will join a growing collection that will travel the world as part of The Library Project.

You can book yourself onto a special book binding workshop every day this week, they’re totally free but advance booking is definitely recommended. There’ll also be other free, drop in activity in the Pavilion throughout their residency.

The Pavilion will host a rolling programme of Creative Residencies. Artists, film makers, book makers and a range of other creatives will set up home in The Pavilion for a week, making new work and offering a variety of free activities for Library visitors.

Each week, visitors entering the space will be treated to a different experience, ranging from interactive pieces such as audience inspired theatre and film workshops to exhibitions of sci-fi sculptures made from junk and artefacts honouring lost mythical deities. The Library’s collections and literary resources inspired much of the programme, and each residency will encourage audiences to discover something new in the Library of Birmingham.

Part of the Discovery season.
