Community Takeover

01 May 2019 - 06 July 2019


Community and learning are at the heart of John Hansard Gallery. From May to July, come and experience a vibrant range of creative ideas and talents presented in nineteen different events by local groups, artists and partners. Hands-on activities and talks will be taking place throughout, so do pop in during your lunchbreak, after school, on a day off, or on a Saturday to get involved!
Gallery 1 will be transformed by a lively assortment of displays and workshops, including 289 local children’s design ideas for Colourful Walkway. We are excited to work with our friends in University of Southampton on Voices in the Gallery, UNESCO Day of Light, and an open exhibition of work inspired by Women in Academia. Art Asia brings the rich vitality of the Southampton Mela Festival to light, followed by Southampton Sustainable Fashion in June which invites you to question the cycle of clothing and environmental impacts. Be prepared for Skate Southampton, as they restyle the space with ramps, boards and zines to reveal everything about the skateboarding scene. Following this, Shaping Clay showcases work made by the Women’s Integration made during a six week artist-led project.
