Hidden Door shortlisted in Creative Lives Awards

We’re proud to have been shortlisted in the Creative Lives Awards – celebrating the creative groups that enhance people’s lives across the UK and Ireland.

Nominees all use creativity to bring people together, providing vital opportunities for people to find community, express their creativity, make friends, learn new skills, boost their wellbeing and have fun.

The nomination recognises the work we did for Hidden Door 2023 at the former Scottish Widows headquarters, our most creatively ambitious event yet. Run and staffed by over 300 volunteers, the festival featured over 200 performances across five nights, from more than 350 visual artists, spoken word performers, dancers, musicians and live performers, attracting in excess of 8,000 visitors.

We need your vote!

34 projects have been shortlisted and will now be assessed by a judging panel in each nation.

Each group is also eligible for the People’s Choice Award, which is voted for by the public. That means that you could help us to win! Voting closes on Monday 29 July 2024.
