In 1996 when Out of the Blue was a fledgling, John Molleson became Chair of a small board of trustees. John now feels it’s time to retire! OOTB current Board of Directors and staff offer our immense gratitude to a one off person who has given his head and heart to OOTB for over 20 years. To mark the occasion John is exhibiting his favourite images of significant aspects of OOTB’s development. The exhibition will run from 14th April to 13th May.

To capture this, #artcore will be exhibiting his work – ‘Let there be Light’ at the OOTB Drill Hall. (4th April – 2nd May)
