The charitable organisation, which was formed seven years ago, launched its new home with a retrospective exhibition ahead of several major events planned for this year, including celebrations of the local legacies of Victor Hugo and Renoir.

They talk about its journey so far, its ambitions for 2023 and beyond, and how they hope it can help them make an outsized impact on that part of town — and the wider community.

'This gallery is going to give us opportunity to bring creativity into the community in a way that hasn't been there before'.
