Crop-up gallery

Crop-up Gallery is a student led curatorial group that aims to take up temporary residence at established exhibition spaces in Nottingham.

Their first exhibition was called Illuminate and was held at Backlit Gallery in June 2012.

Each year, Crop-Up welcomes new members to their organisational committee. This gives students the chance to gain valuable experience in:

  • leadership 
  • design 
  • curatorship
  • marketing and promotion
  • networking
  • project management

 Crop Up has allowed me to understand how I can transfer the skills from my degree into something more vocational and learn a lot about working in professional creative environments in the process.
