Community Gallery Exhibitions

The Community Gallery shows a wide range of exhibitions by groups and individuals from the Borough of Oldham. Some of our community exhibition have moved online – take a look!

Banners of the Ragartmuffins Online Exhibition
From 22 February 2020

The artists Ian Beesley, Martyn Hall, Tony Husband and Ian McMillan have been working with dementia groups all around the country to create banners campaigning for a better understanding and representation of those living with dementia.

This exhibition charts their work in Oldham with The Ragartmuffins, who are part of the Springboard Oldham dementia carers group. These banners based on traditional trade union and campaign banners are important symbols of self-reliance and tangible proof of existence. They give voice to some of the problems and concerns faced by people living with dementia.

Anyone who is interested in submitting an exhibition proposal for consideration should contact Joy Thorpe on 0161 770 4653 or email
