Rise Up: Celebrating 80 Years of Creativity at Risingholme

Creativity can come in many forms and this special public exhibition showcases a curated collection of works made by tutors and learners at Risingholme. It highlights the breadth of creative practice at Risingholme, and reflects on its 80-year legacy of nurturing the arts.

Covering a range of media from painting, pottery, patchwork, textiles, wood sculpture and more, Rise Up is a chance to celebrate artistic achievement, empower and support emerging artists, and contribute to the wellbeing of our community through a meaningful engagement with art.
