Space for Imagination: A Loudspeaker Project, Spring/Summer 2021

The Loudspeaker programme is delivered by Nottingham Contemporary as part of the Opportunity and Change project, which is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and The European Social Fund.

The programme is offered in ten week projects of which there have been thirteen so far. Women are offered a supportive, caring environment to help see things differently, feel positive about the future and move away from challenging circumstances.

Loudspeaker sessions are an opportunity to take a break, develop routines, build confidence, become inspired, and meet new people.

This book presents the outcomes of creative explorations made by a group of eight women living in the East Midlands, during Spring and Summer 2021. The women explored two exhibitions at Nottingham Contemporary, Allison Katz: Artery and Erika Verzutti.

Together they discussed their responses to the art in the galleries and experimented with a wide range of art materials and methods to make their own interpretations. Through taking part, the women have discussed ideas about the everyday in art, feminism and personal expression.
