Lucky Dip is a new exhibition bringing together local artists in an exciting multi-disciplinary showcase of artworks.

Having been awarded the Lucky Dip bursary – an experimental grant programme first launched in 2021 by GHT’s parent organisation ‘a space’ arts – earlier this year, the exhibition sees eleven SO-based artists take over the award-winning God’s House Tower, in an immersive display of artistic practice and creative exploration. From sculpture to painting, textiles and photography, you can explore a variety of artworks produced by some of the city’s most exciting artists. As part of the ‘a space’ arts mission to work towards becoming an anti-racist organisation, five of the Lucky Dip bursaries were awarded to Black or non-Black artists of colour to proactively increase our support of ethnically diverse artists.

The artists exhibiting in Lucky Dip 2022 are:

Emmanuel Boateng, Dana Dohotaru, Josie Gray, Sonia Jackson, Edgar Lushaju, Katie Moody, Robin Price, Martin Ruddock, Mandy Smith, Wenjun Xie and Dave Hubble, who was awarded an 11th bursary to support Dave as he returns to his creative practice having recently endured a difficult period of health.

Admission to the exhibition is free.

We will also be launching a launch event on Friday 26th August from 6pm – 8pm at God’s House Tower. More details coming soon.
