Record Resource Extent

34 items


The records in this series have been selected due to their subject matter. The actual records appear elsewhere in the collection in their original order. 


This record set was created in 2020 to bring together the programme booklets which are stored elsewhere in the collection. The records in this record set are not physically stored together. The records are stored within their original accessions. 

It is not known if the Centre produced a programme leaflet before 1995. From the Autumn of 1995, the Centre began to regularly produce a leaflet/booklet advertising its programme for each season. Leaflets were not produced between 2000-2003, as it appears that the exhibition were promoted individually.

After the move to Thomas Street premises in 2003, the Centre began to produce three programme booklets a year. The Centre briefly stopped producing physical programmes in April 2007. Between March 2008-February 2009, the Centre replaced the booklet with a leaflet which folded out to become a poster featuring a work by one of the artists in the programme. From Autumn 2009 to summer 2013, the Centre publish 6 month programme booklets. 

Physical programmes were not produced after the Centre was rebranded in 2013. The Centre did not regularly produce 6-month programme booklets until the summer of 2015.
