The Newstead Arts Hub is proud to host the inaugural ‘It’s a Small World’ Sculpture Prize & Exhibition, supported by the Community Bank Maldon & District.

Opening Sat 18 March at 2pm for the announcement of the First and Emerging Artist prizes with our guest judges Kareen Anchen, Director Cascade Art Maldon, and local sculptor Sam Deal.

A fabulous, diverse collection of work’s interpreting the ‘it’s a small world’ theme.

Come along and vote for your favourite in the People’s Choice Prize, to be announced on Sunday 9 April at 4pm.


As a former railway station, The Hub has a history of connection. Today this repurposed creative space is a platform for the community to connect through creative expression, storytelling and ideas. ‘It’s a small world’ is a phrase often used to describe the connection points between people and events around the world. Through globalisation our world is becoming ever smaller – for better or for worse. The Hub invited artists to explore this theme by sharing their insights into what a small world means to them. For our visitors we hope to create space to stop, reflect and focus on small things that can inspire big ideas.
