154 Collective


After 2o2o, we were all in need of joy, colour, creativity and the chance to step into a world that was a little bit brighter and a little less serious.

From their individual creative spaces, artists from 154 Collective created an exhibition celebrating what’s great about being connected, collective and part of a community. Their work was displayed in the Lauriston Gallery at Waterside from Monday 17 May to Saturday 31 July 2021.

As you stepped into the gallery at Waterside Arts you came across sounds, images, objects, animations, words and space – all designed to make you smile, pause and reflect.

The temporary installation was created specifically for people in Trafford – and was suitable for everyone from 4 to 94.
