Finding Place is an ambitious contemporary art exhibition featuring local, national, and international artists, celebrating a cultural renaissance in Crawley while complementing the history of the Ancient Priors' buildings.

We invite you to share in this experience and to interact with our workshops, talks, and diverse, exciting artworks in various artistic mediums to form a meaningful dialogue on how we want to experience art and culture locally and explore concepts of how we find our place in the world.

This exhibition will highlight how we need art to connect to ourselves, others, and the world. It is a bridge that links the seen and unseen, the said and unsaid, the felt and the unfelt. Art, in its many forms, is not just an accessory to life; it's a fundamental aspect of what makes us human, helping us to create, share, and understand the complex tapestry of human experience.

Finding Place 2024 follows the massive success of the Manufactured Body Exhibition at the Ancient Priors in 2023; we are delighted to invite back artist and Curator Alison Dollery, alongside Curator Sophie Nowakowska.

The exhibition is supported by Pop Up Culture Crawley, an organisation renowned for its innovative approaches to cultural engagement.
