A group exhibition of work created by local school children from across the Island reflecting upon the heritage of the Isle of Wight and theme of ‘The Future’, drawing inspiration from, and celebrating the Lift The Lid project and commissions.

What is Lift the Lid?

Lift the Lid on Island Culture is a 2 year project focused on four brand new art commissions, the aim being to reignite a sense of pride and passion in the cultural heritage of the Isle of Wight. The project, led by the IW Cultural Education Partnership, involved schools, artists, community groups, arts and heritage organisations, with local community workshops and school sessions.

The final phase, The Great Leap Forward is a celebration of the art commissions and a call to explore the future of culture on the Island through the eyes of young people
