Where There’s Space to Grow

15 January 2022 - 12 March 2022

An Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme Exhibition.

Where There’s Space to Grow  is an exhibition curated by Celebrate Different Collective, a group of young people living in Sunderland, which creatively reflects on the industrial decline of the 1980s in North East England, while looking ahead to a shared progressive future.

Arts Council Collection artworks sit alongside new works created by local Sunderland residents which reveal stories that encourage visitors to dig deep. Championing diversity in a shifting cultural and physical landscape, this exhibition asks: How can we create space for all of us to grow? 

Where There’s Space to Grow  is the third and final of a series of exhibitions curated by young people across the Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme.

Firstsite, Colchester presented House Share  curated by Young Art Kommunity (YAK) from June to September 2021, and Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange present their exhibition SEENco-curated by young LGBTQIA+ people from Cornwall, from October 2021 until January 2022. These exhibitions aim to bring young people together from across the country, connecting them with each other and with the Arts Council Collection.
