Brainchild of Nottingham-based artist Rosemary MacLennan, and as part of collective NottArt, fifty three artists have joined forces to bring you 52 Artists 4 Bulwell, a new collaborative project that aims to engage the local community.

Why Bulwell, we hear you cry? Well, linked to MacLennan's previous undertaking, The Shopping List Project, 52 Artists 4 Bulwell, "Is my way of giving back for the gift I feel I've been given...the shopping lists". The artworks will shortly be placed around Bulwell for people to find by chance, but have also been transferred onto the back of packs of playing cards - hence the 52 connection - a part of a protracted project for schools and community groups around the area, which aims to encourage exploration and engagement with the community. 

Featuring artists such as Matthew Chesney, Alexandra Rayner, Christopher Fletcher and our very own Rebecca Gove-Humphries, the pieces range from photographs to crochet, illustrations to upcycled rammel found out of the streets. If you fancy a bit of a shufty before the pieces get sent out to their new homes, they are being shown tonight at The Creative Quarter - please e-mail Rosemary at [email protected] The cards are also available to buy from the NottArt website.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
