We have taken the decision to close our public venues – RAW Labs, Nunnery Gallery, Nunnery Café and Lakeside Centre will be closed from 18 March 2020 until further notice to prioritise the wellbeing and safety of everyone. We would like to thank all our visitors, volunteers, partners, funders, artists and event organisers who have attended and supported our venues.

The local community is a big part of Bow Arts and we look forward to welcoming everyone to all future exhibitions and events at our spaces.

During the closure of these spaces, we will continue to showcase online some of Bow Arts’ opportunities and projects through our social media platforms and you will find updates on our websites too.

All of our events and exhibitions are currently postponed. If you have a ticket for something we'll be in touch soon. For our latest online content join our new Whats On(line) newsletter, keeping you creative from home. 

To help our creative community during current conditions and throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, we've compiled a list of resources, activities and opportunities to get involved with, stay creative and keep a positive mindset which we hope will be useful for all freelancers and self-employed artists.
