#islastones Exhibition Atkins Gallery

7 August to 17 August

The #islastones exhibition at Atkins Gallery looks to celebrate the achievements of Isla Tansey whose art based campaign to raise awareness of childhood cancers is known all over the UK and the wider world. The exhibition aims to have as many Isla stones as possible on display as a legacy to this inspirational young girl.

Isla encouraged people to decorate stones and then hide their creations for other people to find and then document the discovery on social media using the hash tag Islastones.

How can you join in?
If you wish to contribute an Islastone or bring a found one to the exhibition you can do so by dropping the stones off in the #Islastones drop box in Atkins Building Reception from Monday 9 July to Friday 3 August.

The exhibition will run from 7 August to 17 August with #islastones supporters present during the exhibition to give more information about the condition Isla had and the campaign she initiated.

Then on Friday 17 August from 3pm everyone is invited to come to Atkins Gallery to collect an Isla stone to continue the campaign and hide these painted stones for others to find. If there are any uncollected Isla stones remaining from Friday 17 August collection event they will be transferred to the drop box in Atkins Reception and will be available for re hiding from Monday 20 August.
