Trans Post Project 2023

The Trans Post Project is back for 2023! Attenborough Arts Centre invites you to sign up for a free postcard pack and get creative on the theme of Trans Rebels.

25 years ago Attenborough Arts Centre was established by Richard Attenborough, a lifelong champion of arts and social justice who believed that art is for everyone.

Today we stay true to his vision, by creating and curating a range of inspiring artistic programmes alongside opportunities to actively participate, focussing particularly on giving platforms to those who are often not heard or represented, enabling them to tell their stories.

Come and see an exhibition, experience a live performance, bring the family to a weekend event, or sign up for a Creative Course to bring out your artistic side.
