Go behind the scenes at Nottingham Contemporary and collaborate with curators to deliver a funded public programme for our next exhibition Our Silver City.

Together we will commission and plan events to take place within a structure named The Temple created by artist, Grace Ndiritu and is her largest production to date. Inspired by indigenous sweat lodges, this circular structure will be conceived as a meditative sanctuary for visitors and you will help bring it to life.

Borrowing from sci-fi as well as role play and scenario planning techniques, our project will be set’ in a future version of Nottingham at the end of the 21st century, to collectively reimagine the role of culture and our gallery.
