Fuelled by a continued resurgence of lace in contemporary culture and art and design practice, Lace:here:now was a season of events that took place in the city that was once at the heart of the lace manufacturing industry - Nottingham. In recognition of the value of lace and its importance to the identity of Nottingham and beyond, Lace:here:now celebrated the heritage of Nottingham lace and demonstrated that lace still inspires, fascinates and excites.
Evolved from a series of discussions between Nottingham Trent University's School of Art & Design and Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, the season took place at key venues across the city.
