Join us for an exciting premiere of The Mysterious Beaufoy Trust, a film developed by the peer-group of Gasworks' Participation Programme Even Better Together.
The film visualises the research and ideas that have developed over nine months of workshops, inspired by the former Beaufoy Institute, a significant landmark in Vauxhall. Through the course of the project, Even Better Together's peer-group have imagined themselves as members of 'The Mysterious Beaufoy Trust' (MBT), a fictional group that occupies and manages the Beaufoy buildings. Playing with notions of ritual, mystery and secrecy, the film documents the MBT's quirky and colourful 'initiation ceremony' performance.
The screening is accompanied by other art work made during the workshops, including the initiation ceremony robes and the MBT's Constitution.
