The Harvey Centre’s 35th Birthday Celebration

Thank you to everyone who came down to celebrate The Harvey Centre’s 35th birthday.

It was a hugely important milestone for the centre – we really wanted to mark the occasion with something special which acknowledges the huge influence art has had over the town. The idea of building a capsule full of items that are commonplace now, but will look like artefacts in 35 years is hugely fun. The design of the time capsule has also been really well thought out – and will reflect the town, centre and decade. We’ve also worked closely with local schools, the council and Gatehouse Arts to ensure there is a huge variation of items inside the capsule.

To keep in with the community spirit, we asked commissioned local artist, Jim Brown to design and make our time capsule which will stay on display in The Harvey Centre for the coming months.

We’re very pleased to have had such a great response with the local community who have been involved and submitted pieces to go in it. So thank you to everyone.
