Just because we were apart didn't stop us being connected.  

7 October - 1 November 

On Saturday 20 March 2020, The Horsebridge Arts Centre was forced to close in line with Government guidance in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This sudden change in circumstances meant we had to quickly adjust and adapt to a new way of working and for the first time, from behind closed doors.  

It quickly became our principal aim to continue to reach out to people through a series of creative projects, designed to enable us to meet the changing needs of both local residents and the wider community, by launching Connection In Isolation a unique programme of accessible and varied virtual activities and creative challenges via our website and social media channels.

We felt there was no better way to mark the public re-opening of the Horsebridge Arts Centre than with the 'Connection In Isolation' exhibition, a multimedia collection of heart-warming and positive responses to the project, which includes a range of photography, illustration, film and written words all created by members of the community. 

 Connection In Isolation also showcases the work of other local organisations and groups who used creative activity to help combat feelings of isolation within their own communities during lockdown and for individual artists, who developed new work in response to the unprecedented and sudden changes COVID brought into their lives.  


The Horsebridge would like to thank the David Foundation and Colyer Fergusson Charitable Trust whose funding enabled us to re-start our Gallery programme with this community based exhibition. 

Our Connection In Isolation work is still happening.

Find out more and keep being connected.
