We Are One

13 Nov 2010 - 14 Nov 2010

On 13th and 14th November Nottingham Contemporary is a year old. And we will have lots of birthday surprises going on in the building. Come and help us celebrate!

Me and My Teddy Bear

Bring your favourite soft toy – whether you are one or a hundred – and come and have your photo taken with it in The Space. Watch it turn into a picture that’s 30 feet high. Then download it – slightly smaller – at home, for free.

Share your toy stories, memories and messages

We would love to hear your toy stories and birthday memories. Come along and share them with us for a chance to win a prize! On Sunday 14th from 12pm - 2pm you can also help create a special birthday message with our poet who will be reading out the final poem at 3pm in The Space.

Play and Learn Drop ins

1pm - 4pm on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th in the Studio, contribute to a Creative Explosion!

Birthday treats

We will also have our face painters here and our friendly zebras will be around too, look out for them, they will be giving out some free birthday treats!

Throughout the weekend family friendly guides will help you to discover the galleries. Kids can explore British Art Show 7 with our free Play and Learn trails which can be collected from reception.

Everybody is welcome to come along and celebrate Nottingham Contemporary's first birthday. There will be cakes, candles and lots of fun for all ages across the weekend.

Entry and activities are free.
