Something & Son is a London based arts practice that seek inquisitive and experimental solutions to the social and environmental challenges of our time, often involving the transformation of unlikely spaces. Recent projects include a sustainable farming initiative on a Folkestone rooftop and the The Sweat Oratory for Kinsale Arts Festival. Company founder Andrew Merritt will lead a visit to the floating garden and a talk about the practice’s projects.

Steven Claydon’s work brings together objects recalling historical artefacts, cultural ephemera and geological samples, skillfully mixing different cultures and periods of history. Merging reality with fiction, and appearing at once meaningful and useless, Claydon’s works oscillate between an idea of truth and fantasy, seeming to offer a fragmented image of a future civilisation’s past. He will talk about his practice and new commission in Bristol.
