Community: The Lightbox

When it comes to encouraging creativity in the community, The Lightbox is a leading light in the art world.

Establised ten years ago in Surrey, The Lightbox is much more than just a gallery, offering innovative art programmes that encourage creativity across a wide range of audiences - young, old and everywhere in between too.


Pru Chambers, The Lightbox's Marketing Manager, says: "We’re an independent charity that is here to make art accessible for all, set within a truly inspiring creative space.  But we couldn’t do this without community support, whether that’s people coming to our exhibitions, school visits or our band of volunteers that work tirelessly to help us deliver our programmes.”

Established collections (renowned artists such as Constable and Renoir have been previously shown) sit alongside exhibitions that promote emerging artists and events that engage young minds, encouraging them to see, think, feel and, yes, even touch and interact with art. 


In fact, one of The Lightbox's most popular exhibitions, and a favourite of Pru's too, was The Giant Electronic Art Show, which followed the ethos of ‘Please Touch the Exhibits’ - a term you don't often see in an art gallery.

Pru adds: "The Giant Electronic Art Show summed up everything I love about working at The Lightbox and our accessible approach to art. Creating a connection with art no matter who you are or what you do; that's what we are ultimately trying to achieve at The Lightbox."
