Field Notes is a national projects organisation based in Cornwall, founded and run by curators and Falmouth School of Art alumni Cat Bagg and Rosie Thomson-Glover.
The Clubhouse AGM is a three week programme of talks, workshops, parties and screenings that bring some of the past 15 years of Cornwall’s artist led activity into conversation. It is also the culmination of The Clubhouse, a three month project instigated to celebrate and introduce a new audience to artist led practice.
The Clubhouse takes the form of a free, open access creative workspace, available between events, with a fantastic selection of resources to browse through, from artist made publications and seminal texts to artefacts and ever changing displays developed by local organisations.
