The new ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ exhibition was launched at QUAD on Friday 18th September to a busy crowd of families and art lovers alike. We went along to have a look and found the gallery space transformed into a hands-on family friendly environment with activities for all ages, encouraging people to get involved.

There is a ‘Hidden Stories’ area with short written records of myths and legends in the local area, sent in by the public and collated by QUAD – we read some creepy ghost stories about Derby! Other things worth seeing are ‘The QUADMOS’ solar system and an ‘Interactive Forest’ full of fantasy creatures and animations. Derby artist Fay Nicolson has also devised ‘All Work and No Play’ a production line for making party hats! It has to be seen to be fully appreciated!

The exhibition will be in the gallery spaces and throughout the QUAD building until mid November and includes exhibitions, performances and events all based around the ‘art of participation.’ The activities will invite people to ‘see, touch, make and do, to enjoy and explore’  and are suitable for all ages.

Katapult produced the VIP invites to the launch which were designed to be doodled on and then fitted together as a sculpture on the night.

See the QUAD website for more details.
