Fundays and Events


Here at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre we offer a number of fundays throughout the year. These are usually linked to our exhibitions and are family orientated. As well as our artivity table, we have as many different activities, often with exhibiting artists. We also regularly feature children’s entertainers, and have lots of helpful volunteers to make sure you enjoy your day. For further information on any of our upcoming events, email or call 01724 297070.

Human Machines Funday

Saturday 20 July

Did you come to our recent Family Funday? There was lots to see and do for this Funday linked to Johnny White and Amanda Wray’s exhibition Human Machines. The exhibition’s humorous and interactive kinetic sculptures are inspired by the common experiences and feelings, as well as pivotal moments in life, which affect us all as humans.

Johnny and Amanda spent the day in the gallery, running ‘Cranky People’ workshops, where visitors made moving, cranky people sculptures from wire and laser cut plywood. The workshops were incredibly popular and everyone, young and old produced some brilliant (and very individual) results.

We also had a giant sized ‘Operation’ game where a steady hand was needed to remove the vital organs and a selection of bones without setting off the buzzer. And there were messy, gory and gloopy things to make, such as a ‘pot of snot’ and a bloodshot eyeball, as well as paper crafts on our ARTivity table.

The gallery was also participating in North Lincolnshire Council’s Power of Words Festival.  We welcomed Sheffield based poet Joe Kriss who spent the day at 20-21, composing a poem which he performed at the end of the day.
