We’re really excited to be on tour again with Artcasting and heading down to County Durham for an interactive workshop and drop-in session. Claire and Jeremy have packed a bag full of Artcasting goodies and devices, and are all set for their own mobile adventure to Barnard Castle.

The theme of the day is ‘Connect Robert Mapplethorpe to Your World’, and we’ll be once again presenting the Artcasting mobile app at the ARTIST ROOMS: Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition at the Bowes Museum.

We hope to meet as many exhibition visitors as possible, and introduce them to the wonders of Artcasting, so that they can respond to the work of the ARTIST ROOMS with new and imaginative connections between art, time and place.

So, drop in to Bowes Museum any time (11am-12pm and 1-2pm) to connect Mapplethorpe to your world!

How to get involved:

  1. If you have an IOS device (iPhone or iPad, preferably including a mobile/3G connection as well as wifi), download the Artcasting app before the event at or simply search for ‘Artcasting’. If you don’t have your own, you can try Artcasting on one of our devices. Artcasting will also be available on android for this event, and you’ll will be able to download it on the day.
  2. Bring your phone/tablet to the Mapplethorpe gallery on the first floor at the Bowes Museum from 11am on Saturday 27th February.
  3. Enjoy the exhibition, try Artcasting, and talk to the team!
