VIRTUAL GALLERY

Since the Coronavirus pandemic began in early 2020, we have explored new ways to engage with our community from the safety of their homes, and have supported artists to create work for the digital realm in response to our new world context.

In this virtual gallery you can browse a selection of exhibitions, artworks, talks & films produced during this time.
