It has been an eventful year for our little nation, and we have had lots of fun getting creative about the Jubilee and the Olympics! Here's hoping 2013 brings as much reason to celebrate British achievement and creativity!

A huge Merry Christmas a Happy New Year from a very festive looking 20-21!

NEW FREE Self Guided Tour Packs

We are pleased to announce an exciting venture for 20-21 Visual Arts Centre and a creatively stimulating opportunity for schools, colleges and groups in North Lincolnshire and beyond. Our new Self Guided Tour Pack is currently FREE to any schools wishing to make a visit to 20-21 in order to enrich their arts delivery.

The new packs are specially designed to compliment our changing exhibition programme, as well as being directly related to art and design national curriculum at each key stage. This means each pack will be specific to a school's requirements, as well as being relevant to our exhibitions; enhancing any educational visit to the centre.

By attending 20-21 Visual Arts Centre and following our new Self Guide Tour Pack, pupils will be given the chance to:
  • Engage with contemporary art, craft and design, and work in a creative environment, as well as make work in response to local cultural influences.
  • Develop their own views and express reasoned judgements through spending time, physically, with real quality artwork that has been well researched and beautifully crafted.
  • Make links between art and design and other areas across the curriculum.
  • Achieve parts of their Arts Award.
