During the first lockdown March 2020, when many of our artist’s work dried up overnight, Skippko commissioned all 18 of our artists, to reflect on creativity during lockdown and isolation.

From 14 – 17 July you can explore the results of this commission in the 1912 Mill at Sunnybank Mills.

With photography, print, textiles, audio, animation, sculpture and performance, it’s going to be a diverse and fascinating show.
