Factory Nights


Factory Nights is a series of inspiring working sessions for ANY visual artists, photographers, writers, poets, musicians, filmmakers and any other creatives!

Factory Nights is not a discussion event, seminar or workshop.

Factory Nights are free sessions that simply provide an opportunity for creative people to come together in an interesting venue and supportive environment to make work or initiate ideas.

“For rednile, Factory Nights are ‘a way of stepping outside received reality’ whilst also taking a moment to live in the moment. That I was thinking of D.W. Winnicot’s ‘third space’ of play (where real growth happens) when someone described the ethos of Factory Nights as ‘let’s play again – everything at work is just play’ is one of many things which is neither design nor coincidence, but arguably carefully encouraged accident.” Mark Robinson / Thinking Practice
