The Art Cart will be popping up at Kettle's Yard every Friday between 2-4pm during school holidays! 🎨 Come and find the Art Cart and our lovely volunteers and have a go at the free, creative activities for families 👋 To promote sustainability, The Art Cart has been made using upcycled materials. The main structure has been created using artwork packing crates. The crates were previously used during the Kettle’s Yard closure period to store and keep safe an Alfred Wallis painting and a sculpture by Naum Gabo. The Art Cart also uses old piano keys as drawer handles, scout tent poles, old handrails, and casters. All the objects used in the making of The Art Cart have been sourced and preloved in Cambridge. 💚🌎 The Art Cart was designed and made by Loukas Morley and was made possible with kind support from the Friends of Kettle’s Yard. #MuseumFun #Sustainability #KettlesYard #VisitCambridge #Cambridge #CambridgeUniversity #SustainableArt #KidsinMuseums #MuseumLearning @camunivmuseums @cambridgesust

The extension at Kettle's Yard was designed by Leslie Martin and David Owers, and opened on 5 May 1970. The space was created to provide additional space for Jim and Helen Ede's growing art collection, and to meet their wish that music should have an important role at Kettle's Yard. The large space counterbalances the more intimate cottages, though it shares their domestic atmosphere.

This new project will see our local communities, an artist and researchers at the University of Cambridge come together and have fun. Dr Louise Hickman at the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy is investigating how people with a diverse range of needs physically access arts and culture in the city and how this will inform the future of work. By exploring this topic creatively and with local voices, CoLAB will produce new data that responds to the city’s priorities. [image: 3D printer in action]
