Berwick Visual Arts shortlisted for the annual Museums at Night Connect 10 competition

Released on 14 January 2014

Berwick Visual Arts has been shortlisted for the annual Museums at Night Connect 10 competition and we need your help to win!

We are one of four venues in the country with a chance to win £2000 in funding and the help of internationally renowned artist Alex Hartley to create a very special event at Berwick Gymnasium Gallery for Museums at Night in May.

Alex Hartley's work addresses complicated and sometimes contradictory attitudes toward the built and natural environments and he is perhaps best known for Nowhere Island. Commissioned as part of the Cultural Olympiad for the London 2012 Olympic Games, Nowhere Island travelled from the High Artic region of Svalbard to the south-west coast of England in the summer of 2012. As it made this epic journey it travelled through international waters, where it became the world's newest nation - Nowhereisland - with citizenship open to all. If we win, there is also chance Nowhereisland might make a final voyage to Berwick!

But as were competing against four other venues across the UK, we need your votes to win - you can vote for us here at it only takes a few seconds and you can vote from now until 5pm on Tuesday 28 January.  We're the only venue in the North-East to be nominated and we would really love to make this happen!
