Initiated in 2015, TEXTclub is a public program that parallels FELTspace's monthly exhibition programming. It provides a platform for discourse and critical discussion around art, text, inter-disciplinary ideas, and the relationship between the current exhibition and selected 'text'.
We welcome the local community - arts-oriented and beyond - to be present and participate in these open format and accessible discussions around the selected 'text', however the term may be interpreted, with the featured artists and our facilitators.
