Art Gene’s COVID-19 Response


Dear All

These are ‘Extreme Times’

We all have a part to play in limiting the spread of COVID-19.

In order to protect our audiences, staff and the most vulnerable, we are postponing all our public events until further notice. These include all upcoming Back On Our Map and Extreme Views events, as well as communal work days on the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space.



BOOM Grows… Saturday 21 March 1 – 3pm

Extreme Views: Barrow Park to Lesh Lane, Sunday 29 March 12 – 3pm

Extreme Views 2020 Exhibition, Friday 17 April 5:30pm & 21 – 25 April

Allotment Soup Work Days, most Fridays 11 – 2pm


We will look to reschedule these events in due course.

We’d like to say thank you to our funders, whose understanding has allowed us flexibility in this challenging time.

We are still here, so please get in contact with any questions, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you are able to get out, remember the value of your local environment for health and wellbeing!

Keep well, and we look forward to continuing our projects and events publicly later this year.

Wishing the best of health to you all,

The Art Gene team
