What a year it has been, we truly hope you have got through it and are looking forward to 2021.
Thanks to everyone for engaging with canopy through the year, mostly online. It was very disappointing not to be able to deliver the Phone Box Project as we had planned. So we’re busy collating what happened during the artists research stage and will share with you very soon.
What we have missed oh-so-badly is seeing you in person.
A network needs people to meet-up, so once lockdown softened a little we were able to walk and talk and catchup with some people, but not all. We hope that will change very soon, and are optimistically making plans as to how and where that can happen. But until the crisis is over, we must, of course, respect all the government advice we get regarding social events.
We are grateful for the support of and emergency grant from Arts Council England, which enabled us to create micro-commissions and bursaries, you can read about those here.
Meantime, we are making plans for 2021 and that includes updating this website.
Please bear with us.
And Happy New Year for 2021!!!
from the team
