Would you like to opportunity to develop your artistic portfolio and further your professional practice?The National Centre Presents... is our annual opportunity for East Midlands based designers and makers, solo practitioners or groups, to work with the team at The NCCD to curate a month long exhibition within our Roof Gallery. Read the comment below from a past exhibitor:

 'I would say that The National Centre Presents has been a truly wonderful experience, from beginning to end.  The help, support and advice from each member of staff was second to none, and made it all very personable.  The opportunity enabled me to realise a vision, an idea I had for some time but without the venue to see it through. 

I feel the exhibition has kick started this stage of my career, the positive reaction from visitors will hold me in good stead for future exhibits.'
