Launch of Chip Chat

Welcome to CHIP CHAT. Culture Weston’s first YouTube series, and the only show that puts the chips into the chats.

CHIP CHAT is a new YouTube series where professional artists, emerging artists and wider residents of Weston meet up over chips to chat culture and heritage. Part of the Historic England project ‘21st Century Shrines’ (one of many transformational activities underway in Weston’s Heritage Action Zone), CHIP CHAT puts local voices firmly and deliciously at the heart of cultural and creative developments in the town.

Launching Friday 15 October, another ‘Great British Takeaway’, our starter episode sees internationally acclaimed public realm artist Morag Myerscough shaking on some salt, vinegar ‘n’ plenty of colour to Big Lamp Corner, with exuberant artist interviewer Megan Clark-Bagnall. Megan also chats to local Artist and Muralist Shruti Ashish in our very own Front Room!

Discover what public art Morag is cooking up for Weston High Street, and how she rates the chips being cooked up for her.

 

21st Century super Shrines is an exciting programme to create a series of innovative contemporary ‘shrines’ which will appear on the high street. These shrines may be permanent installations or live arts experiences that encapsulate the vitality and values of the local community. Creatively steering the project is lead artist Megan Clark-Bagnall in partnership with brilliant guest artists, emerging artists and the local community.

The project is managed by Culture Weston as part of the four-year-long High Streets Heritage Action Zones’ Cultural Programme, led by Historic England, in partnership with Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The Cultural Programme aims to make our high streets more attractive, engaging and vibrant places for people to live, work and spend time.
