It has been curated by Hypergallery's Vincent McEvoy and Emily Clement.

Caroline Cawley, arts centre manager, said: "We’re looking forward to re-opening on Tuesday April 13 and welcoming people back into our community arts centre. 

"This funding will help us to reconnect with audiences, communities and artists, as lockdown eases.

"It’s been a tough year for all of us and we’re very grateful for this lifeline funding to help us get back on our feet."

Caroline added that the arts centre's plans for the next few months include workshops, community events and performances and that many are free or at ‘pay what you can afford prices’.

The money has been awarded from the government’s £1.57 billion culture recovery fund to help the museum recover and reopen following the Covid-19 lockdown.
