Pandemic Projects

Whilst the global Covid-19 pandemic means the doors of the CAST building must remain closed to the public for the present, we are working with CAST studio artists and with contributors to CAST’s recent public programme to create a selection of online content.

Dom Bailey, chef-manager of CAST Café, and CAST studio holder Ben Sanderson have been exploring roads less travelled out of Helston and slightly further afield, creating a series of Sound Walk podcasts.

We have invited artists and writers who have been part of CAST’s recent programme to write about their lives in lockdown.

CAST studio holder Nina Royle, who is the senior painting technician at Falmouth School of Art, has devised a series of online conversations with students, on the theme of painting in relation to Touch, Translation and Present Space

CAST’s resourceful learning specialist, Lucy Grant, has produced a series of ‘Think and Make’ animations and resources, demonstrating simple creative ideas for children and families to try at home.

There is also a report from studio artist Nicola Bealing about her March residency at the Centro de las Artes de San Agustín Etla (CaSa) in Oaxaca, Mexico.
