Broadway Gallery

Open call for exhibitors

Open call for online/virtual exhibition proposals and in Broadway's Gallery.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and local lockdowns, Broadway's Gallery has been unable to open to the public. We are offering funded opportunities for artists to share work online and exhibitions in our Gallery on Broadway's reopening.

Broadway offers use of its Gallery space for local artists and organisations to share their work.

In 2020–2021, we are offering exhibition opportunities open to artists, working in any art form, who are enabled or inspired by technology.

We invite expressions of interest from creative practitioners based in and around Nottingham.

Expressions of interest are currently closed. More dates coming early in 2021.
