The Fire Within Relaunch

simulation of The Fire Within

This Saturday 19 September, we will open the next phase of our cultural manifesto, The Fire Within, with a new show focused on promoting social inclusion.

The theme for 2020/21 is Digital Wigan and the title of the exhibition – We Will Always Be Together – has become even more topical in a world of social distancing. The exhibition will explore technology, creating a digital world for visitors to experience in The Galleries shopping centre. Local, regional and international artists will be celebrated in the show.

Closed tours will take place on Saturday due to social distancing. The exhibition will officially open to the public on Thursday 24 September, 11am-3pm but visitors can get a sneak peek on Saturday 19 September, 1pm-3pm.
