Completing the Birmingham-Bristol-Cardiff trinity, the artists, curators and critics of Cardiff are proud to present December eleven – a day of art events, screenings, visits and socialising across the City. December eleven is a result of conversations initiated through The Centre Is Here seminars organised by Chapter gallery and WARP.

The day will start at 12 noon with a visit to the renowned Tactile Bosch studios, where artists from all three participating cities have been invited to undertake a residency. There will also be visits to various artist studios, a film screening by Outcasting, presentations throughout the day by Open Empty Spaces, British Racing Green and a visit to the recently re-opened Chapter Arts Centre. Rubric journal of culture will be releasing its anticipated next issue, and there will also be the chance to recharge at selected hostelries and eateries including the new Cardiff Arts Institute. The day’s end will be marked by Richard Bevan’s exhibition preview at g39 in the city centre and an after show party.
