Bridging the Gap – The GAP Project is a 3-5 year programme designed to create site-specific, temporary public art that will enliven the Galaxy and surrounding area.  NINE RED Presents… (CIC) working in partnership with local artists, individuals and organisations has formed an arts committee that will implement the Galaxy Art Project with the acronym “GAP” and is ran at No. 1 Bridge Street Luton.

GAP is a town-wide project creating art and cultural experiences that can help improve health and wellbeing and can result in benefits that range from the physiological to the emotional.  GAP provides  space for local visual artists, sculptors, sound artists, performing artists, photographers, filmmakers, and others to exhibit in The Galaxy Walkway and other Galaxy areas, including pop up art and performances.
