The first of this year’s talks and exhibitions in the Crypt Gallery, Unlocking the Archive, starts on Thursday 25th January 2018. Unlocking the Archive presents an exhibition of graphic design inspired by Renaissance books in the Norfolk Heritage Centre.
The evening starts with an illustrated talk and discussion in the Blake Studio at 6pm with Sophie Butler and Thomas Roebuck (both UEA Lecturers from the School of Literature at UEA) and Darren Leader (graphic designer), followed by a Private View in the Crypt Gallery 7.15pm–8.30pm.
The event is free and tickets can be obtained from https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/norwich-school
'New Impressions' is part of the Unlocking the Archive project run by academics in the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, which aims to open up the Renaissance book collection at the Norfolk Heritage Centre to new audiences, in new ways.
The exhibition in the Crypt Gallery builds on the tremendous success of the first 'New Impressions' event, held in the Norfolk Heritage Centre in November 2017, described by the internationally-renowned designer Sean Perkins (North Design) as 'a fantastic idea beautifully executed and brought to life'.
Come along to the Crypt Gallery to see for yourself the different ways in which Norwich's centuries-old literary treasures can still inspire our city's creative community today.
