Architect, artist and activist, Bill Bensley, has joined forces with Junkyard Theatre Phuket to create an exclusive art and theatre experience for one weekend only at The Slate Phuket.
Bringing to life his Faroese Chronicles exhibition, the resort will provide the perfect setting for guests to learn from Bill Bensley how to unleash their inner artist, engage in a one-night-only dinner and theatre performance narrated by the artist, and indulge in a vibrant art-themed feast at Rivet – all funds raised will go to the Shinta Mani Foundation and the Phuket Hotels Association.
Guests will have the chance to book a three-night stay to enjoy intimate access to the artist, with limited tickets available for the dinner and show, or an art-inspired lunch. The hotel will also organise a special online auction (prizes include travel experiences) and have prints from The Faroese Chronicles on sale to further assist fundraising.
The Faroese Chronicles is an exhibition of 38 artworks inspired by Bill Bensley’s numerous travels in the remote Faroe Islands and the quirky characters he discovered there. The Junkyard Theatre will perform a one-off show through song, dance, comedy, and rich storytelling, with Bensley joining the performers onstage to share the wit and wisdom of his Faroese friends.
Bill Bensley commented: “I always love returning to The Slate and am so looking forward to this fabulous event, which will be full of fun, but also with a serious side to raise funds and awareness for the Phuket Hotels Association and the Shinta Mani Foundation.”
