Take a sneak look behind the scenes at the stunning Hospitalfield House this weekend and marvel at recent project ‘The Arbroath Template’.

Children from local schools have been involved in the project which attempts to open up art to everyone.

Prints, paintings, photographs or any image that inspires you, can be uploaded to be part of the Arbroath Template. The project organisers hope to then share it with people across the globe.

Devised by an artist who goes by the nom de plume ‘Bob and Roberta Smith’, famed for his peice, Make Art Not War, belonging to the Tate collection, the Arbroath Template hopes to demonstrate that art can be open to anyone and everyone.

Bob and Roberta Smith, Hospitalfield staff, educators, other artists, school pupils and others are working on.

A Hospitalfield spokesperson said: “The Arbroath Template hopes to build into an inspirational large resource of ‘Open Source’ imagery concerned with value in the arts.”

For the opportunity to see this unique piece of art in the town where it was devised, visit Hospitalfield Arts during their open weekend. Starting on Friday, November 28 at 6.30 – 8.30 p.m. for an evening preview event with performances to launch The Arbroath Template.

Daytime events run on Saturday November 29 and Sunday 30 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. with a performance starting at 5 p.m. on Saturday 29.
