Exhibitions // Coming up // Not One Place
2 October

Not One Place



It showcases drawings made from the streets of Falmouth during 24 hours ending midday 24th August, set alongside quotes from those who know what it’s like to live on the street 24/7. The exhibition reminds us that many different lives are lived in one town and that the street becomes another place when you have no home to go to.

A free exhibition of original works for anyone interested in day-to-day life in Falmouth, in the arts or in the social challenges facing this county. Organised by illustration students from Falmouth School of Art at Falmouth University it also raises the question – what can art and artists do to help make the world a better place?

During the exhibition there will be opportunities to learn about the work of St Petroc’s Society, a Truro-based organisation providing accommodation, support, advice, training and resettlement services to single homeless people in Cornwall. Funds will be raised for St Petroc’s through Donate & Draw – donate what you can afford and enter a draw to win a signed drawing by one of the #StreetDraw24 artists.
