Bank open daytime 12-6pm
EXPLODING MIND AND MATTER 7.30-11PM
OPENING NIGHT. Free entry with paying cocktail bar.
By the time we have this event in the bank we will have exploded a van full of debt. The remains of this explosion will be suspended in exploded view in the bank, captured in slow motion and multiple angles on camera and become the climactic scene of our feature documentary film ‘Bank Job.’
Why did we do it? What is the power of unruly iconoclastic art in taking on an unjust economic system? Can we hack economics and imagine and break our way through?
Join us to debate these questions and celebrate this milestone in our project exploding £1.2M of debt as we open the rebel bank again for intensive production and events.
The Bank is approx 110 metres from Walthamstow Central train and tube station.
The only two road crossings you need to make along the way from station to venue are both proper pedestrial crossings with green man/red man lights and with step-free access from the pavement.
The front doors to the Bank when open at their widest provide a gap of 88cm. There are no steps or other obstacles, There is a gentle slope up from the front door into the main area which is entirely flat.
Unfortunately the venue does not have accessible toilets. Cubicles are small and accessing them requires getting through a doorway gap of 62cm. Toilet seats are 44cm, and sinks are 86cm, above ground.
We do not have central heating and as such the space can be quite cold at times. We will have blankets on hand for any visitor who wants one during their time in the bank.
