Blackfield Creatives are delighted to announce the launch of The Wisbech Gallery, a new and exciting exhibition space located in Octavia View, a Grade 2 listed building on the South Brink in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.
Blackfield Creatives will manage the Gallery spaces in partnership with the Ferry Project, who own the building, to deliver exhibitions and workshops. Both teams recognise the benefits and value that the Arts can bring to the community, both in terms of cultural experiences and improving health and wellbeing.
To celebrate the opening of the Gallery, we are launching the first Open Exhibition and invite artists to submit their work for consideration. More details can be found here.
The Ferry Project is an award-winning social enterprise and registered charity which helps homeless people in Fenland. Keith Smith, Director of the Ferry Project said, “We have carried out several joint projects with Blackfield Creatives and have seen for ourselves the change art can bring to people lives. This partnership will allow both the general public and our clients to experience the benefit that engaging with art can bring to our wellbeing. Many of the people we support have major challenges to face and art can help them to cope better with the pressure those challenges bring. We are fortunate to have a beautiful building and want to share this wonderful space with the whole community. “
The Wisbech Gallery will formally open on Saturday 1st July with the first annual Wisbech Gallery Open Exhibition. We will be sharing details of Wisbech Gallery opening times soon.
