Map Bulletin

We are sorry to inform you that the Fishslab Gallery, Beach Creative and Creek Creative have made the decision to postpone the MAP collaborative 3 Gallery project for a second time.

We aim however to be able to do the shows at the same time next year 2022 and will plan accordingly.

We will be in touch as soon as our collective future has some clarity.

Best wishes, from the MAP team.

MAP bulletin

Hi Exhibitors,

As we send this out to you, we are living in uncertain times which makes future planning challenging. Our latest news is that yet again we have had to close the Gallery. We are not sure for how long, but we are hoping that with the vaccine underway, we may be able to do our MAP show as promised in April. We will update you as soon as we know more.

Best wishes
