Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme

Explore the ground-breaking Firstsite Holiday Fun programme through vibrant artworks in this interactive exhibition celebrating the fun, friendly and creative ethos of Holiday Fun and the families who attend.

Holiday Fun was launched in 2017 with an aim to help children stay happy, healthy and creative, and to provide a fun space for families to interact and socialise. Since then, the programme has grown to be a treasured asset within the local community, securing its place firmly within the heart of Firstsite.

Channelling the lively vibes of Holiday Fun, the Keep Being Amazing exhibition will be a colourful and energetic celebration of the programme, featuring artworks and visitor activities that represent the positive values of Holiday Fun. Artworks displayed within the exhibition will include works by Tracey Emin, Paula Rego and Oliver Beer.

Bright and cheerful designs by artist Morag Myerscough will also transform the Living Room gallery into a kaleidoscope of colour, with the gallery space used as a creative making space for you to explore your artistic imagination with a host of free drop-in and pre-bookable activities.

Keep Being Amazing is the last of a three-year series of exhibitions which have been produced as part of the Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme.
