    Calling all artists living or working in Richmond Upon Thames

    Orleans House Gallery is inviting submissions from artists living or working in the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames for our November open call exhibition – Breaking Ground. Running alongside Richmond Literature Festival, Orleans House Gallery will curate an exhibition of work by local artists responding to the same stimulus as this year’s festival – ‘how we can build a better world that is more sustainable, more inclusive and more equal?’. The exhibition will run in the Stables Gallery at Orleans House Gallery from 6-21 November. 

    The Exhibition

    The exhibition stimulus recognises that this is a significant moment for society and our communities to come together to explore new ways of thinking and being to instigate transformational change. It is an opportunity for local artists, designers and makers to investigate the most pressing issues we face and explore our hopes and visions for the future. What might our new normal look like? How can we explore and comprehend what might come next? What new future(s) might be on the horizon? 

    The Opportunity 

    This is an opportunity to have work exhibited as part of a group exhibition in the Stables Gallery from Saturday 6 – Sunday 21 November. Submissions are welcome across visual and contemporary artforms, both 2D and 3D. Your submission may be artwork you’re already working on that relates to the stimulus or something you will work on over the next month in response to the stimulus.  

    Orleans House Gallery will curate the exhibition, selecting artworks to be included based on: 

    • response to the stimulus above 
    • relevance to our community 
    • alignment with our values below: 

    Collaborative – we work with people in innovative and inspiring ways, we invite artists, communities and individuals to create the public programme with us and help develop the arts service. 

    Socially engaged – we respond to the needs and wishes of local people, widen participation in the arts and connect people from different backgrounds, enabling them to have a say over issues that affect them, and promoting opportunity particularly for underrepresented groups.

    Experimental – through the arts we test new ideas and approaches and share our learning to support the work of the borough. This might involve being playful, adventurous and taking risks. 

    Enterprising – we will always be open to new ways of working, sustain and develop productive partnerships and seek to find ways to make our work financially sustainable and develop inward investment for the arts.

    Orleans House Gallery will 

    • provide the exhibition space, 
    • curate and install the exhibition,
    • process art sales (we support artists looking to sell works through the exhibition, a 40% commission applies to all works sold which supports our work across Orleans House Gallery),
    • publicise the exhibition (via public displays, events listings, and Orleans House Gallery website and social media), 
    • provide invigilation of the exhibition. 

    How to apply 

    The deadline for proposals is 12noon on 11 October. 

    Applicants can submit 1 piece of work to be reviewed by the selection committee. Please note we expect a high volume of applications and not all submissions will be exhibited. 

    The work submitted, if selected, must be the work brought to the exhibition, i.e. you can’t make something different retrospectively. 

    Please visit Artist Opportunities – Orleans House Gallery to find the link to the application form at the bottom of the page.

    If you have any queries, please email Exhibitions and Collections Arts Officer, Chris Burton – Chris.Burton@richmondandwandsworth.gov.uk

    Nell Gwynn

    Charlie’s Angels?

    Charles II loved women – first Barbara, later Louise, but most of all he loved Nell, the lovely Nell Gwynn – or, as she put it, “the Protestant whore”.

    The rivalry of the women and the theatre gave them all a lot of fun and gaiety, which is what you’ll find at Q2’s production of Nell Gwynn.

    And you’ll never look at a marzipan tart the same way again.

    £10 standard, £9.00 concessions. 28-30th October, 7.45pm and 30th October 2.30 pm, The National Archives, Kew

    Short Plays for Short Journeys

    Wild Duck Theatre is delighted that Short Plays for Short Journeys Season Two is now available on all major podcast servers or via link wildducktheatre.com/podcasts

    The success of Season One has given us an international reach this time as we include two American, an Irish and two Brits in selecting the very best of new writing.

    Performed by a mixture of pro/experienced actors from in and around Richmond, these are a fascinating mix: Covenant Farm and our stewardship of the land; Relic and the memories of an Irish childhood; Sisters-in-Law as a sequel to Brothers in Season One; Butterflies as a riff on the smart home and Crazy Quilts which is an unsettling look at a small town quilting group.  

    Donations to support the podcast and new writing can be made at wildducktheatre.com/donate 

    For fuller sponsorship partnership opportunities with Wild Duck Productions, please do get in touch info@wildducktheatre.london

    If you're a Writer, Director, or Actor looking to showcase and would like to be a part of future Seasons, we'd love to hear from you.

    We are also looking to collaborate with creative sound designers for Season 3 and beyond. For further information please go to www.wildducktheatre.com/who-are-we

    Wild Duck Theatre is a London based theatre company established in 2015, with a mission to produce high quality contemporary work, combining the best talent - experienced amateur or polished professional and often a mixture of both. Writers, Actors and Directors often develop their career ambitions by showcasing with us.

    British History 1945 - 1990

    British history from 1945 to 1990 divides into two distinct sub-periods.  From 1945 to the mid 1970s there was a degree of policy consensus between the two principal political parties, though we will discuss whether this has at times been over-stated.  From the mid 1970s there was a clear policy choice for the electorate with significant continuing implications for our world today.  Our approach will be thematic.  For each of the sub-periods we will examine in turn the principal political, diplomatic, economic and social events and changes.
