Electronic Village Galleries Penryn is part of a pilot project devised by Kate
Southworth at University College Falmouth which is supported by Arts
Council England.  Electronic Village Galleries aims to develop a
distributed platform that supports artists to host new media art events
in their local village or town hall, and which links together local art
communities in Cornwall and the South West of England with network and
new media art and its global communities. It’s an experiment, so please
join in and help to shape it!
Forthcoming  Events:
