We’ve been busy at INTRA during lockdown – a refitted windows gallery, a new festival Ebb & Flow, a Pop Up Museum, and more!
For Holocaust Memorial Day and LGBT History Month, we’re proud to be part of ‘Closer Than You Think’, a project bringing together our neighbours The Ship Inn (thought to be one of the oldest LGBT pubs in the country) and the Chatham Memorial Synagogue.
Join in with Hopes & Dreams, and help artist Xtina Lamb to make large illuminated lanterns for the Pentagon Shopping Centre in Chatham, by creating pictures or patterns from plastic bags.
