LACi Logo

LACi – Lancashire Arts & Crafts Initiative, promotes the work of some of the most exciting fine art and contemporary craft graduates.

The LACi group (pronounced Lack-ee) is a partnership of museums and galleries with a special interest in contemporary art and new design. Members include commercial galleries and museums with their own art and design collections.

Over a hundred artists and makers have exhibited with LACi over the eight years of our development. Artists and makers who have participated in the initiative as new graduates include Penelope Batley, Loretta Harmer, Sarah Morpeth, Hannah Tofalos, Bethan Lloyd Worthington and Richard Sweeney - to name but a few!
