About the event
A transformative art initiative funded by the Arts Council, Gosport Borough Council via Historic England Heritage Action Zone - High Street funding is nearing its climax as the historic alleyways of Gosport are set to unveil a series of captivating art installations. The project, which officially concludes with an exhibition opening for a private view on November 24th at the Discovery Centre, has reimagined these urban corridors that encapsulate the tales of historic figures, local tradesmen, sailors, shopkeepers, strong-willed women, inventors, and unsung heroes. Purpose and Vision: The project's mission is to foster a deeper appreciation for the town’s heritage, transforming overlooked spaces with art that not only beautifies but educates and engages with wider community. It aims to bridge the gap between past and present, shedding light on the diverse and inclusive fabric of our local history. This initiative has seen the collaboration of local artists, residents, and students, creating a thriving momentum for Gosport's creative future.
The community and media are cordially invited to the exhibition opening, a celebration of the project's success and a showcase of the alleyways' transformation. It's an opportunity for the community to gather, reflect, and look forward to the continued renaissance of Gosport’s historic passages.
