Connection in Isolation

Here at the Horsebridge we are adjusting to a new way of life with our doors closed and not being able to interact with lovely people everyday or share in their arts experiences.

We thought we may be able to help keep connected with you and help those isolated with a range of activities and challenges. We'll also be sharing content from creatives that we work with regularly who have kindly created a variety of activities to keep us stimulated and connected.

Please keep checking our social channels too as we will share even more there. (links at the bottom of the page)

1 minute outside

We know many of our community are needing to stay isolated and not able to leave home and there are many others who want to do something to help where they can. Step outside with these 1 minute outside videos from our community.

Creative Challenge

Each week we are going to set a Creative Challenge to anyone to take part in. We'll try and go across a range of arts each week and not reliant on specific materials. The aim is for us to share with each other and stay connected.

Virtual Exhibitions

Our closure means we haven't been able to bring exhibitions to you that artist and groups have been planning for months. Where we can we are going to bring these to you virtually. 

You can see them on our Galleries page as they go live. The first one is our own Virtually This Is What I Want To Show You.
