This exhibition brings together new work by nine local artists working in multiple disciplines and mediums. From music to painting, planting and performance, the work is informed by a multitude of ideas, processes and practices. 

The exhibiting artists are recipients of a new and experimental grant programme, launched by GHT’s parent organisation, ‘a space’ arts in January this year. The Lucky Dip bursary scheme offered nine artists in the SO postcode £500 to fund the creation of a new artwork or activity. In order to remove barriers around access and inclusion, proposals were not assessed and bursaries were awarded to artists through a lottery selection.

The scheme provided financial support and a well-needed boost of positivity at a time when many artists were facing challenges due to the impact of the pandemic. The bursaries enabled the artists to experiment and take risks to push their practice forward. 

As part of the ‘a space’ arts mission to work towards becoming an anti-racist organisation, five of the Lucky Dip bursaries were awarded to Black or non-Black artists of colour to proactively increase our support of ethnically diverse artists.

Exhibiting artists : 

Kwame Bakoji-Hume, Issa Loyaan Farrah-Kelly, Claudia Friend, Gullu Kandrou, Maryam Zahra Kazimi, Svetlana Ochkovskaya, Alex Sutherland, Joanna Rose Tidey and Vin Warrican.
