Sun Cultures

Until Saturday 3 June 2023
10am-4pm, Art Lounge
Free/No booking required

The Sun is an important symbol for people across the world and is celebrated in many different faiths and cultures. Inspired by the British Museum Spotlight Loan, Gathering light: a Bronze Age golden sun, participants from ethnically diverse community groups in Sunderland have been working with artists to create artworks and performances inspired by the Sun and sharing their stories about the Sun’s significance in their lives. Their responses have been brought together in the Sun Cultures exhibition.

Gathering light is generously supported by the Dorset Foundation in memory of Harry M Weinrebe. With additional funding from The Austin & Hope Pilkington Trust for accompanying activities.
