We have held 2 meetings already this year, at fantastic venues, and we’re thrilled to announce that the third venue for this year is the brand new contemporary arts gallery, ILKON.
Read on for more details about our next event on Wednesday 11th October!
10am – 1pm, 114 Heanor Road Ilkeston, Derbyshire DE7 8TB
ILKON is the home of Ilkeston Contemporary Arts which is housed in the former Methodist church on Heanor Road, bringing creative arts to the community and wider region.
“ILKON is not a made-up word, it is from the old English ‘ IL’KON ‘ meaning ‘each one, every one’ and appears in Geoffrey Chaucer’s ‘The Second Nun’s Tale’ about the life of Saint Cecilia – who by coincidence graces one of the beautiful stained-glass windows of the church which had been generously donated by the local community in 1936.”
Panel Members and Discussion theme to be announced.
During your visit, you are welcome to view the current exhibition at Ilkon – Selected Works from ILKON Permanent Collection curated by Isobel Brigham.
Venues have been selected to share an event or exhibition that is happening locally, or simply to view the venue itself, so take the opportunity to visit somewhere new or catch the latest exhibition.
Date and Time
11th October at 10am-1pm
