Communities & Groups

Our Community

Nottingham Contemporary is embedded in our local community and we want everyone to have the opportunity to visit, explore and enjoy our programmes.

We collaborate with a range of local groups to deliver workshops and events, both at Nottingham Contemporary and around the city, which inspire creativity, cultivate ideas, stimulate conversation and support positive physical and mental health. We invite groups to get in touch if they would like to work with us.

If you are thinking about visiting us as part of a local community group, we can offer a free introduction to our exhibitions and our organisation. We can provide interactive gallery activities designed for all ages and abilities to engage with our exhibitions, or bespoke creative workshops with one of our artists in our Studio space.

Get in touch

If you are part of a community group or organisation and would like to find out more about how we could work together please get in touch by calling 0115 948 9786 or emailing

Our Partnerships and Projects

We are always working in collaboration with local partners and delivering a range of projects.

Our Loudspeaker programme supports women with multiple needs through regular courses of artist-led workshops. We’re working with Bulwell Creative Connectors helping them to commission public art in their local area; and we’re supporting our neighbours Narrow Marsh Residents Group in responding to local redevelopment plans. We’re involved in the national project First Waves led by Parliament, using art as a way to think about the Race Relations Act. We also have a lot of experience in supporting the needs of older people and those with dementia.
