We have decided to take funds out of reserves and commission all 18 Skippko artists to reflect on their personal lockdown experiences and create a piece of work.

Given the rich diversity of our artists, these pieces will embrace a range of visual arts (sculpture, print making, textiles, etc.), theatre, performance poetry, animation, sound and photography.

Current thinking is that a digital presentation of this (as work in progress) will be streamed / broadcast in December and a physical exhibition / publication-launch in April 2021 at one of our city-centre venues. More news as it develops!
