Live Weekends: Shunt

23 Feb 201127 Feb 2011

Join us for five days of non-stop live art, performance, music, films, installation, workshops, theatre and parties. 

Building upon three years of vibrant and exciting programming at their former home, the Shunt Vaults, members of the Shunt collective invite artists to animate the ICA's ground floor with a fun fair of events, from tattoo parlours to pheasants, sewing machine races to passionate love bullets.

All free - just turn up and join in the party.
