‘THE THINGS WE DIDN’T DO’ – a collaborative one-day event between the arts organisation SEAFAIR and Bridport Arts Centre.
This is a very special one-day event, and the first public event at Bridport Arts Centre since lockdown will happen on Thursday 13 August 2020, between 10am and 4pm.
‘THE THINGS WE DIDN’T DO’ is a playful look at lockdown. We are inviting people to come and contribute, be intrigued, have socially distanced conversations in the Allsop Gallery. They will need to bring a face mask, we’ll do the rest. Visitors to be aware the Arts Centre toilets will remain closed.
SEAFAIR artists have been involved in a range of events in the area since 2018, including the Pop-up Fringe alongside Bridport Open Studios in 2019. Recently we were selected by the community to create a Laboratory of Fun for Port East’s BluePrint Festival just as the pandemic arrived.
As co-founder Sally Lemsford says “While the arts have played a key part in surviving these difficult times, there is a lot that disappeared overnight. We want to share our incredible ideas and demonstrate what we could do.”
As the gallery is upstairs, we are happy to operate the stair lift where appropriate.
Ring ahead if possible and advise us: 01308 427183.
We have implemented a range of extra safety measures to keep you safe when visiting exhibitions during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Social distancing measures will be in place and stewards will guide you from the Arts Centre forecourt through the foyer and into the gallery, where a one-way system will be in place with an exit through the cafe garden via the outside stairs. If you have used the lift to access the gallery, the steward will make sure that you are safely taken back that way and that people queuing will maintain a correct distance from you.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
