NCCD Art Club: Take 2
Until 16 May 2021
Following the success of our first NCCD Art Club in July 2020, NCCD are delighted to showcase NCCD Art Club: Take 2. The pandemic has been a difficult and challenging time for all of us and we wanted to keep uniting our community through creativity and storytelling; helping us all respond and recover and look ahead to a new world. Through craft, design, making and performing, they encouraged everyone to unleash their creativity and be inspired by their latest exhibition. They called for creative responses to three themes that linked to our theatre design exhibition, Staging Places; A Sense of Place, Costumes and Wonder.
