NN Contemporary Art is currently closed whilst we undergo capital renovation works at 24 Guildhall Road, with a planned opening to the public in early 2022. Meanwhile, we host our programme of events online.

Festival as public realm


CEO and Artistic Director of Freedom Festival Arts Trust, Mikey Martins, Creative Director, Cultural Strategist and founder of the award winning White Night festival, Donna Close and Frequency festival of Digital Culture, Co-Director, Samantha Lindley explored whether their festivals could develop new relationships to cultural spaces through a time of austerity and lockdown. They dove into looking at how festivals, public realm and outdoor work can foster new collaboration underpinned by diverse expertise and if this can influence our commissioning and cultural futures.
