People who have saved this event:


Two exhibitions showcasing the work of City Arts’ Young Producers group. Each year, in November, the Young Producers take over the City Arts’ building. They put on an exhibition in The Window Gallery at City Arts, and run a series of events. The theme for this year’s takeover is (un) rest.


(un) rest

Disturbance, turmoil, disorder, chaos, anarchy, rebellion and uproar. These are words that describe (un) rest. Have you ever experienced these feelings, before obtaining peace, serenity and harmony?

City Arts’ Young Producers invite you to explore the concept of (un) rest through art. The work represents the triumph of overcoming a period of unrestfulness. Watch the exhibition evolve over time in our window gallery.

Our Place

Inspired by ‘Our World’ – the first live, global TV broadcast – Chesterfield-based Junction Arts commissioned 7 projects in 7 communities across 4 counties. Each project made new artwork that is representative of ‘place’. Director Chris Bevan captured and combined these projects into a feature length film. It was which was broadcast online in September 2021.

The Young Producers worked on City Arts’ contributuion to the project. They collaborated with filmmakers Luke Radford and Toby Curson. Together they made 6 short films that capture the vibe and personality of Nottingham.
