Exhibition programmes across the UK
We hold exhibitions across the UK each year, involving local groups and artists to shape the content. These exhibitions allow more entrants’ families to see the artworks, and engage artists’ local communities.
Local exhibitions feature entries to the year’s Koestler Awards from the local area, and performances and talks by local artists. Each programme looks to open up new debate and perspectives on the work. Exhibition curators have included local youth offending teams, serving prisoners, secure children’s homes, artists and people on probation. Exhibition programmes have been held in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Gateshead, Colchester, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Snape, Margate and Cardiff, and we have taken Koestler writing to festivals and events around the UK.
We work in partnership with host venues to create these ambitious programmes, and look for local and national funders to support their production.
