work in progressWe have invited three early career artists to base their studios in the exhibition space over the course of our Work in Progress exhibition.  They will have one week to explore our collections, engage with our visitors and create something inspirational.  We had 90 incredible applications and we managed to whittle them down to the 12 most original and creative ideas.  Over two weeks 1,165 people voted for their three favourite artists to win £600 per residency and the chance to work at the home of ideas worth fighting for.

Oliver Bliss will run creative textiles workshops crafting messages of hope to MPs who did not vote ‘Yes’ to equal marriage.  You can learn about the role of MPs, be inspired by the pioneering banner collections challenging Section 28 and craft your own history-making messages.  This craftivist project will champion a triumph in our collective history!
