Masculinity meets artificial intelligence in jukebox sci-fi The Daddy Blues

Brave, funny and  a little bit disturbing this is a lab experiment with a dash of disco. Artist and mad-scientist Phoebe Marsh is setting out to build herself a new dad - a Franken Father of her very own - from scratch.

This project was made possible by support from Canterbury City Council and the National Lottery through  Arts Council England.

£9.5/£8.5 concessions

I have recently got back from working with Most Mira in Northern Bosnia. Most Mira focus on peace building and reconciliation. I had one of those kind of perception altering experiences which honestly needs a bit more composting- I'm writing something about my time there and in the meantime do pop over to their website and learn about the work they do- perhaps even donate?
