The Vardo Project Space
A vardo is the Romany word for a wagon or caravan. The Romany vardo owned and maintained by Canterbury Christ Church University is a ‘Marriage Wagon’, constructed c. 1908. It is stationed at Augustine Arts Centre, next to Augustine House. It is available for projects such as micro-exhibitions, residencies, readings, recitals, film screenings etc. It can ‘comfortably’ seat six inside; there is also space outside for a small gathering. It has a pull-out bed which can act as a display space, it also has a projection screen. Electricity can be supplied from the portacabin beside the caravan upon request.
