Safe Spaces is an exhibition produced by a group of artists who have each created a personal response to Chichester Cathedral and the concept of safety. The work explores different themes including people, place and presence through a range of media.
Contributing artist Peter Baker is delighted to be included in the exhibition. “I enjoy doing art at Pallant House Gallery and it makes me feel calm. I also love the Cathedral, sometimes I go in to do sketches. To me it’s a ‘safe place’”.
Chichester Cathedral’s Learning and Engagement Department has worked with Pallant House Gallery’s Learning and Community Programme since summer of 2017 when it piloted 6 creative sessions on a Friday afternoon. This grew into a programme of 8-9 sessions per year over the next two years, using a diverse range of Cathedral features to inspire creative responses in a range of media.
The Safe Spaces Exhibition is free and runs from Friday 4th October to Sunday 3rd November 2019.
