Your vote could help New Art Exchange create an Art Solar Garden
New Art Exchange (NAE), a contemporary art gallery in the heart of Nottingham’s Hyson Green, is in the running for a grant which will allow it to create an innovative Art Solar Garden – and it needs your help to make it happen!
The gallery, which is the largest space in the UK outside of London dedicated to culturally diverse contemporary visual arts, has been shortlisted in the People’s Millions, a grants programme run by the Big Lottery Fund in partnership with ITV.
The project will go head-to-head with a Royal British Legion project in Mickelover, Derby on 25th November and if it is successful in getting the most votes, NAE will receive funding to create an innovative community garden with a difference.
The Art Solar Garden project will harness the energy of the sun through new solar panels installed at NAE. It will also bring local people together to design the garden, a space for the diverse public to grow plants and herbs from around the world. The garden will also have an inspiring light installation and an interactive cooking and events space which will represent the diverse cultures living within Nottingham’s inner city.
Jennifer Spencer, Chief Executive of Experience Nottinghamshire, who is also a Trustee of New Art Exchange, said: “The New Art Exchange galleries play an important role in the local visitor economy. It would be tremendous to get some local support behind their bid to gain funding from The People’s Millions, a partnership between Big Lottery Fund and ITV, as this would enhance their offer and help to raise their profile nationally.”
To vote for the NAE’s Art Solar Garden, call lines will open at 9am on 25th November and closes at midnight. The phone number to call will only be revealed on this date when an ITV special, previewing the NAE’s project, airs. You will be able to see it on this website.
