A documentary film by Benjamin Wigley

28 Oct 2009

On Wednesday the adventure begins....
Get Involved 17's beautiful Nottingham Contemporary Sofa will begin its journey, starting at 9am in the heart of our city: Old Market Square.

As we follow the sofa on its voyage around Nottingham, anyone is welcome to take the weight off their feet and chat to your host, whilst being encouraged to draw, write or doodle on the sofa itself.

Get Involved 17 will visit six locations in the city inviting the public to comment on the glorious art work. The film and sofa will be shown when Nottingham Contemporary opens in November.
