We want to celebrate and contribute to Bournemouth's growing creative scene and provide opportunities for local, up-and-coming artists. 

Our vision is to create a new and exciting event that promotes and brings attention to Bournemouth's growing creative scene by showcasing and sharing the works of local artists. 

What is Contained?

Pop-Up Bournemouth aims to create a new and innovative multi art-form exhibition: 'Contained', to be held in an unconventional  and unexpected venue; shipping containers, where a collection of work from local artists and students will be exhibited on the walls inside a metal shipping container. 

'Contained' will be a day of celebrating creativity, the event takes place on Saturday 21st April, this will include the art exhibition itself,  creative workshops, collaborative art, DJ's, live graffiti art, print sales and vintage clothing sales. 

Who We Are: 

We are a group of five third year Creative Events Management students from the Arts University Bournemouth. Having studied event management for the past three years we have built up a wealth of knowledge and expertise to put to the test in our final major project. With a collective of experience in a range of areas, we are keen to make this ambitious, yet worthy project happen. 

Our Story/Vision:

When deciding on what we all wanted to do for our final major project event, we knew that we wanted it to achieve three things: contribute to Bournemouth's growing creative scene, provide a platform for local creatives to showcase their work and make an impact on the people of Bournemouth by providing  a new and exciting event. 

Bournemouth has a somewhat overshadowed creative scene, with little pockets of creativity dotted around the local area.  Opportunities  for artists are limited, with very view opportunities to showcase their work. We noticed something was missing, a creative culture, a place for artists work to be celebrated, a platform for local artists to get their work out into the public. 

We took inspiration from places like Bristol, Brighton and Shoreditch, where creativity is around every corner. Therefore, Pop-Up Bournemouth was made. A collective of people with the shared vision and aim of creating pop-up art events in and around Bournemouth. We want to create pop-up events that bring art to people in unexpected, unconventional places, and offer opportunities to local artists to showcase their work. 

'Contained' is set to be our first event, with plans to do more pop-up art events in Bournemouth, aiming to make a bigger creative scene and overall increase the opportunities for local creatives and those graduating from AUB. 

What the money raised will go towards:

Your donations will go towards: creative workshops, collaborative art, activities, DJ's and artist talks, the curation of the inspiring and creative exhibition and production costs, for example the costs of the shipping containers themselves. 

With your backing we will be able to achieve our aim of contributing to Bournemouth's creative scene and celebrating the artwork of local, up and coming artists!
