Here at The Turnpike Gallery, we’re initiating some exciting projects with our artists and local communities, aimed to develop skills, support wellbeing and create new connections with each other and the planet.

Our projects will draw upon the vibrant legacy of the Turnpike and look forwards towards its future, through artist-led activity, platforming youth voice and collaboration with our communities.
