Life after Lockdown: a community's story
 
Join with us in reflecting on the last few months and looking to the future as we launch our community exhibition - we want as many people to be involved as possible so please help us by joining in, and/or spreading the word!
 
We may currently be closed, but in 2021 our building will be buzzing and alive again, and we want to fill it with the creativity of you our audiences and community. We want to hear your stories from this unprecedented time, what you want from the future, and what makes our community unique. We want to celebrate community spirit, resilience and hope.
 
The exhibition itself is likely to be in early 2021 (updates will be announced as we know more about our reopening), but in the meantime we want to capture your thoughts and stories in the here and now, so are looking to gather all submissions by the end of September.
 
We're hoping that different age groups will contribute different elements to the exhibition - find out in the table below what we'd love you to create.
