Kino is a not-for-profit, and completely unfunded, arts space.
We are committed to supporting DIY arts and grassroots activism, and aim
to work with promoters, groups, organisations, and individuals who share
the qualities, outlooks and values that are important to us.
The events side of Cafe Kino (as well as other areas of the co-op) rely
heavily on the voluntary time and effort given by our staff, who work
hard to bring you a programme that we are very proud of.
We are proud to be an all-ages venue. There are no age restrictions on
any events at Cafe Kino unless otherwise stated.
The main entrance to the cafe is step-free and on the ground floor. However,
most events take place in the basement area. Unfortunately, due to building
restrictions, this space is only accessible by
Untutoured life-drawing session
6.00pm - 8.00pm
popular untutored, model-led life-drawing sessions run weekly from 6pm
to 8pm, and are a great opportunity for people of all abilities to try
their hand at life-drawing in a relaxed and unpressured environment.
will be run by Laura Todd and Lara Simo, both experienced life-models
who are keen to see a relaxed and affordable alternative to life-drawing
classes, often a very disciplined and expensive art form.
Each two-hour session costs just £5, which includes use of charcoals,
rubbers, drawing boards and fixative. Paper is available at cost price
(10p per sheet or 50p for 6 sheets), however please feel free to bring
your own materials if you have them.
Advance booking is recommended, but you may also drop-in on the day if
space is available. Ask in the cafe to book a place (payment required
at time of booking).
