Learn how maritime archaeology investigates our changing relationship with the world’s oceans and seas, from 2.5 million years ago until today.
The Open University is hosting a number of short, free, on-line courses on a range of subjects, including one run by Southampton University’s Centre for Maritime Archaeology on Shipwrecks and Sunken Worlds – https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/shipwrecks
The course is done in your own time and at your own convenience, but Falmouth Café Scientifique will also be hosting a weekly session in The Poly where people can get together to discuss the course and exchange ideas.
As part of the BFI’s Sci-Fi Season: Days of Fear & Wonder, the Poly is proud to present:
Screening of FLASH GORDON + Q&A with Director, Mike Hodges
Falmouth University’s School of Film & Television autumn guest lecture season, in partnership with The Poly, are pleased to welcome legendary British director Mike Hodges (Get Carter, Croupier) to Falmouth to discuss his career following a screening of Flash Gordon.
The 22 Panels Comic Art Show is proud to be working with the Falmouth Art Gallery, who invite you to join their Director, Henrietta Boex, for a tour around the ‘Brilliant Colour’ exhibition and to view their Children’s Illustration Archive including work by Frank Hampson (Dan Dare) and Peter Firmin (Bagpuss).
What makes good comic book art? It’s not just a matter of accurate drawing. Every story makes unique demands on a narrative artist, and his understanding of what makes a good story – as opposed to a dull sequence of events – is what makes the difference between a comic book that you simply read and forget, and one that sets your imagination alight, and you go back to time and again.
Donya Todd and Hannah K Chapman of the Comic Book Slumber Party will lead you through a series of drawing games with attitude.
This is the seventh annual exhibition of work made by artists using the John Howard Print Studios in Penryn. The exhibition showcases a wide range of work by artists with a variety of approaches to printmaking and demonstrates the possibilities provided by the facilities and tutoring at the Studios.
First appearing in the pages of British anthology comic Warrior in 1982, Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s V FOR VENDETTA has since become one of the most iconic and influential graphic novels of all time.
Cornwall’s first comic book convention returns to Falmouth for a second year, following a successful debut at The Poly last October. 22 Panels 2014 will boast a full programme of events and even more special guests, working with the Falmouth Art Gallery and illustration community to bring the best in comic art to Cornwall.
