Connection in Isolation

Here at the Horsebridge we continually adjust to the new way of life with our doors opening and closing at short notice throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and not being able to interact with lovely people everyday or share in their arts experiences.

We wanted to play our part within our community to help keep connected with you and help those isolated with a range of activities and challenges. Our social media will share work of creatives sharing work to do the same, please continue to share what you are doing with us on social media.


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.

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.

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.
