From Saturday 21st September, the gallery will become a dedicated space for Phoenix community projects to be created, showcased and celebrated. A pop-up photographic studio will occupy the space for photographer Natasha Bidgood to create family portraits with local residents and visitors. The street art project will grow from outside the Phoenix Gallery building onto the gallery walls to give local young people an opportunity to tell people more about who they are. Phoenix artists will offer portrait-based creative activities for everyone that will transform the space into an evolving visual representation of ourselves, their neighbours and visitors.
A preview will take place on Friday 20th September, 6-9pm and a full programme of events and activities will be listed on the Phoenix gallery website from September.
