As outdoors is now the new indoors, we invite you to visit our new on-the-street gallery and our first exhibition, Signs of the Times. Local artists and community members have contributed to this group show of new and archive drawings, embroidery, photographs, poetry and painting, celebrating spring growth, community action and the importance of togetherness.

On LightNight we’ll be playing recreational games responding to the artworks and would love you and your family to join in. And we hope your visit inspires you to get creative by taking photos, writing poems and making pictures. Signs of the Times has been activated by Squash’s 100 year street vision, inspired by nature; to actively transform our Windsor Street neighbourhood into a people-powered place that is known throughout the world for being a playful, resilient and loving community where everybody thrives!

Community arts organisation Family Hive uses play as a key approach to community participation and will be co-designing the street games on LightNight.

The Squash cafe will be open with a special menu for LightNight.

Signs of the Times is dedicated to our dear friend, the photographer and baker Mark Loudon, whose work features in this exhibition.

Audience: Specifically aimed at adults but is family friendly
