The Pacitti Company have released a fresh batch of events to be held in the Think Tank (sandwiched between Ipswich Museum and Ipswich Art School Gallery).
The next event to sink your teeth into is the salon: FEMINISM, PUNK ROCK AND PUBLIC SERVICES. The Think Tank regularly hold Salons, no these aren’t an opportunity to get your hair done, nor are they a slightly smoky Parisian get together. Instead lively debate and discussion will ensue and on Thursday 11 February, 7PM-10PM join British artist Gemma Marmalade and digital director
Rebecca Kemp for an evening of sexual politics, digital technologies, making noise, making art, the costs of labour and more in Feminism, Punk Rock and Public Services.
As well as indulging your mind in free flowing discussion Think Tank events offer the opportunity to meet like-minded folk and create new creative connections.
£5 entry means you can have an enjoyable evening at less than the cost of some mega popular generic blockbuster that everyone is currently talking about at Cineworld.
