This Culturally Chard project provides an opportunity for the community of Chard to create illuminated mixed media artworks that will be displayed in the windows of buildings, including empty shops, in Chard town centre in late February/March 2023.
We will create a brilliant exhibition of artworks that celebrate the heritage of our town and draw attention to some lesser known locations. We will brighten up the often dreary months of January and February through engaging workshops with schools, community groups and families. We will energise the town centre with illuminated window displays in February and March and programme an outdoor projection event on Saturday 11 March in the town centre from 6.30pm, location tbc.
The theme will be Belonging: people of Chard past, present, future.
