Unity Lantern Procession
For the second year running, the two communities of St Ann’s and Sneinton will process from their respective community centres in a wave of lanterns, colour, light and music, congregating at Sneinton Market Place in a celebration of community unity.
Artists Jessica Kemp and SaRena Kay are making lanterns with young people and staff from the Community Recording Studio in St Ann’s and the Greenway Community Centre and SEND Project in Sneinton. You can drop into a lantern making workshops between 11am and 4pm on Saturday 31st January and Sunday 1st February. The two parades kick off at 6pm on Friday 6th February from The Chase in St Ann’s and the Greenway Community Centre in Sneinton.
Portrait of Hockley, St Anns and Sneinton
The incredible Mik Godley has been visiting groups, communities and landmarks in Hockley, St Ann’s and Sneinton, drawing a series of portraits of local people using the Brushes app for iPad. For Light Night, in Sneinton Market Square, the artist’s animated portraits will be projected large-scale onto the ten-meter-high surface of the City Arts’ Dome.
Young Producers present…
There will be a second opportunity to view the Young Producer’s installation when City Arts opens for Light Night. The exhibition features a new art installation devised and created by the young artists that make up City Arts’ Young Producers, in collaboration with participants of City Arts’ Express Yourself programme. Young people teamed up with local graffiti artist Nathan Bainbridge to produce the piece. The installation is a stylised and imaginative model of a modern city-scape, inspired by the architecture of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter.

Artist Graham has created a series of silhouette animations will be shown in a number of Hockley shop fronts, including City Arts, leading you through Hockley and down to Sneinton Market. The short looping animations tell stories influenced by the area’s history, from the ancient and long forgotten Sneinton Maze to more up to date representations of the people, place and area.
