Please note: Due to sad and unforeseen circumstances, the Tuesday Night Project is postponed. We hope to continue these activities in some way soon; any updates will be shared here and with community partners.

A statement from The British Red Cross:

It is with great sadness that we share that Bill Walton, our valued colleague of over 10 years, has passed away. We know this is sad and shocking news and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time. Bill was extremely committed to the refugee and asylum-seeking community in Nottingham and his loss will be felt by many people. He was a passionate humanitarian who refused to ignore people in crisis and believed in the power of kindness. We at the British Red Cross are devastated by his passing and will miss his kindness, creativity, and unique spirit. He has left a great legacy through his work supporting people through destitution, setting up the Tuesday Night Project and building links with many different local organisations. We share our deepest sympathy with everyone who knew Bill and will share information about memorial arrangements as soon as they are available. We are keen to work with our partners and those who knew him to celebrate his legacy.

The team at Nottingham Contemporary send our deepest sympathy, love and support to those who knew and loved Bill.

In partnership with the Red Cross (Nottingham), we're pleased to relaunch the Tuesday Night Project. Aimed at welcoming newly arrived communities to the city of Nottingham, the Tuesday Night Project is a fun, friendly and relaxed group workshop designed to support English language skills through conversation. Guided by an artist and supported by University of Nottingham STAR volunteers, the sessions provide a space to make art, meet new people and try new activities including animation, photography, clay modelling, drawing and mark making.
