Connecting Through Creativity
We are very excited to be exhibiting We Are Mini Dreamers and My Lockdown Story in partnership with Arc at Stockport Together Again, an exhibition celebrating the impact of arts on health and showcasing our lockdown creativity, with art, activities, connection and more in Stockport, the place that makes itself… The exhibition opens on Saturday September 25th at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery and will feature the work of individual artists and studios, collectives and community groups and provide an opportunity for Stockport to come Together, Again, through our shared experience. We hope that it will provide a springboard to further connection and creativity with the wide variety of artists, groups and projects running across the borough. The exhibition opens on Saturday September 25th at 10:00 at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery on Wellington Road South (A6), when all are welcome to come along and join in our free art activity. It will then be open Thursdays and Fridays 13:00-17:00, Saturdays 10:00-17:00 and Sundays 11:00-16:00 until 16:00 on Sunday November 14th when the exhibition ends.
The launch will include a Saturday Art Club upstairs at SWMAG. Create your own ‘My Lockdown Story’ inspired concertina book. My Lockdown Story is an exhibit in the exhibition, a collection of books reflecting on life in lockdown through art, using pencils, watercolours, pens and collage materials. Create your own larger version on the exhibition’s launch day, drop in from 11:00-15:00 in the upper gallery. There will also be some fun pop-up Stockport buildings by Exvista / Kellsall Architects to create! My Lockdown Story is a project in collaboration with The Doll’s House Art Gallery. Donations to the charity are welcome on the day or at Justgiving.
At the gallery you can pick up a guide to the exhibition, programme of events and full listings for Arts & Health Week, a week-long programme of events exploring creativity and wellbeing, local information and training sessions from October 11th -16th. See here for those currently booking.
Details on grabbing one of our artist micro-commissions which will provide stepping-stone funding for exploring creative ideas and projects within Stockport is also coming soon! Stockport is the place that makes itself, where might this thread lead…
