An immersive art exhibition featuring over twenty artworks exploring the key issues affecting our community today

Skipton Big Ideas is ArtHouse Jersey’s major flagship project for 2021 a spectacular, immersive exhibition featuring over 20 art installations by local and international artists at St Helier Town Church. Designed to welcome the whole Island community, the exhibition promises to be an event that Jersey can be proud of.

Sustainability

Alongside the exhibition there will be a number of world class evening performances, lunchtime lectures and inclusive weekend workshops, all speaking to three key themes. Skipton Big Ideas aims to engage the whole community in a debate around how we might create a more inclusive and sustainable future for our Island home.

Accessibility

Are the arts accessible to all? Do some people feel excluded from the cultural narrative? If so, how might that sense of exclusion look and feel, and how might we better break down barriers in the arts?

Identity

Where do we get our sense of identity? Where is home? How important is cultural identity and how do we square this with an increasingly global community?

What are

The Artists?
