We are appealing for local artists of all ages to help create a magical seasonal exhibition in the heart of the resort.  “Winter Wonderland” is the title of the exhibition and MAP is asking local people to create individual snowflakes in shades of white, pale blue and silver - from recycled materials - to be hung in the MAP gallery space between Subway and Starbucks. the Light Cinema will also play host to some of the snowflakes in their windows.

“Last year we asked residents to create sea creatures for our launch ‘Fish and Ships’ exhibition last December and they responded with enthusiasm, inventiveness, wit and artistic flair,” said MAP Chair Liz Byrne. “We are hoping that they will be equally inspired by the theme for this year’s Christmas exhibition.”

Roy Lewis's contribution from his company Mech'art

Contributors should bring their snowflakes to the drop box which will be located in the foyer of The Light Cinema, anytime between this Wednesday afternoon and the 8th of December. Each snowflake should be packaged to prevent damge during collection and should have a parcel tag or gift tag with your name attached. If it is particularly fragile or valuable, please email as to arrange a more secure drop off time and location.

Local schools will be asked to contribute a wrapped box as a gift for New Brighton - a gift of joy, peace, happiness or whatever they feel New Brighton needs for the future.

The launch of the exhibition will coincide with a celebration at The Light Cinema with carols and local musicians on Thursday, 12th December in the early evening, times and details to be confirmed.The display will run until the middle of January.

Artists will be able to collect their exhibits from the MAP unit on (Sunday 12th January 2014) between noon and 2pm.
