Follow The Travelling Text Kiosk as it makes it’s way around Exeter, treat yourself to a piece of artwork or maybe a limited edition print. Prices start from just 50p!
The stock for sale on the kiosk has been produced by young people with the help of artists, designers and writers in response to exhibitions at Spacex for exetreme imagination 2013, a festival of writing for and by young people.
Stand Up, Speak Out! (Children in Care Council, Devon) have explored their aspirations and created slogans for bags, mugs, posters and badges. Textiles students from Exeter College have worked with London based maker Jessie Chorley to produce hand stitched textile pieces incorporating text drawn from their own memories of childhood. Young people from The Atkinson Unit have produced a newspaper featuring an illustrated alphabet.
