A Loudspeaker Exhibition

"creative path to acceptance" spelled out in letters made of different materials on a white background

A pop-up exhibition presenting the outcomes of creative explorations made by a group of women living in the East Midlands during the past ten weeks.

The women explored the current exhibitions The Place We Imagine and Life on the CAPS at Nottingham Contemporary. They experimented with a range of materials and methods to make their own interpretations, including collaborating to make a film. The group also visited a local community growing project at St Ann’s Allotments.

Together they discussed ideas about art, public and private space, relationships with the city and with nature, and cultural heritage.

Loudspeaker sessions are an opportunity to take a break, develop routines, build confidence, become inspired and meet new people. Women are offered a supportive, caring environment to help see things differently, feel positive about the future and move away from challenging circumstances.

The Loudspeaker programme is delivered by Nottingham Contemporary as part of the national Building Better Opportunities programme through the Opportunity and Change project, which is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.
