New Shoots: Life After Lockdown

Exhibition designer: Louie Whitemore. Exhibition Curator Louie Whitemore. Illustrator and Animator: Amber Cooper-Davies. Composer and Sound designer Mark Melville. Thu 18 Mar – Sat 13 Nov

In March 2020 we were all asked to stay at home and TBTL closed its doors.

We had no idea how long we might be ‘locked down’ for, and last April we asked our community what lockdown meant to them and what were their hopes for the future. Over 150 people, from tiny tots to grans and granddads shared paintings, sculpture and poetry with us.

The project has allowed us to work with creative freelancers to design and install the exhibition in the gallery at the Theatre.

New Shoots will remain on display at the Theatre for visitors to see when we reopen, but we also created a digitised version of the exhibition whilst we were closed which you can view here below – introducing squirrel and duck.
