Dear Visitors 

In light of the recent outbreak of the CoronaVirus (Covid 19) the Creative and Cultural Organisation have been monitoring the situation closely to make sure we keep our visitors, customers and team members safe in these unprecedented times.

As an organisation we owe a duty of care to our visitors, customers and staff members and we want to ensure we are mindful not to put anyone at any unnecessary risk and so we have taken the difficult decision to close our galleries, shops and spaces until we feel it is safe to open again. 

All of our upcoming exhibitions, workshops and classes have been postponed during the time we are closed, and we shall make plans to reschedule content for a future time when it is safe. 

We will keep everyone updated of our plans to re-open through our social media as the situation progresses. 

We thank everyone for understanding and hope to be open again as soon as is possible. 

To all of our customers, visitors and staff we hope to see you soon.

 Stay safe. Kindest regards

 The Creative and Cultural Team

“Entering into the HIP gallery we where presented with an exhibition by renowned photographer Ian Macdonald showcasing work from Smiths Dock. With nearly fifty years of material it was incredible to see such established work beautifully curated by Alan Raw. His understanding and insight into the work allowed the audience to really engage with the prints on the wall.
