Leigh Clarke 13:15 – 15:15 Foyle Rooms 1 & 2
Artist Leigh Clarke will be leading a Drawing Bingo workshop in alignment with his project Last Night at the Bingo for the Margate Festival. Between 1.15 and 3.15, Leigh will encourage visitors to the Turner Contemporary to each illustrate one of the 90 bingo phrases typically used by bingo callers. Helped by RCA artists Dieter Ashton and Robyn Lawrence, participants will take part to build a drawing installation to celebrate the legacy of the recently closed Beacon Bingo Hall on Margate’s seafront. All ages and abilities welcome.

Last Night at the Bingo can be seen at outdoor venues around Margate

Jay Rechsteiner 13:15 – 15:15 Foyle Rooms 3
Conceived as an audio drama and presented as a multi-layered audio-visual installation, the work follows an imaginary conversation inside an artist’s head. Throughout the narrative, the protagonist, the artist Jay Rechsteiner, meets important art world personalities such as Klaus Biesenbach, Carl Freedman, Tracey Emin, Martin Creed, Iwan & Manuela Wirth and Hans-Ulrich Obrist.

Find the artwork at 101 Social Club (new venue since the publication of the printed programme) and other venues around town, to be announced or discovered A conversation in my head while discovering the very existence of house plants

Drop in to play this special Raspberry Pi version of Minecraft that allows you to write code to build things incredibly fast. Instead of building one block at a time you can lay a thousand blocks in a blink of an eye. It is also a great way to write your first computer programmes in the popular Python language.

Matt Mapleston is based at RESORT and works with code. He is a technologist who likes to work with artists who aren’t constrained by technical possibilities.
