Art Culture Tourism Q&A

June 3rd 2019

by Art Culture Tourism

After returning to her roots, Marysia Zipser, founder of ACT, had to start her life and career again from scratch after losing her husband. She came back to Nottingham with her two sons to be closer to family and she hasn't looked back since! We asked her all about Art Culture Tourism. An amazing community that brings local creatives together!

“I could see a need to bring our local creatives and that heritage together and so in December 2013, I organised our first networking and mini exhibition themed around LACE at Beeston’s landmark building, Anglo Scotian Mills. I followed this in March 2014 with our first Cultures Crossing ‘experiment’ bringing international artists into the mix, many of whom I ‘met’ on LinkedIn.”

“In 2020 I would like to see developed an ACT Online Gallery with shop facility. And to continue our Cultural Exchange/ tour programs to European cities and of continuing our Italian Connection, so more cultural exchanges there too.”
