IOU have suspended all office-based activity and public events due to Covid-19. The IOU team are busy working remotely and exploring ways to adapt and share our work in an online environment. Including The Storytelling Bus and Rear View 360.

We are developing new content to continue the Making It workshops online, inviting a number of IOU collaborating artists to share their skills, and enable you to get creative and experiment with new artistic techniques from home. 

We are also exploring ways we can use virtual spaces to share Speaking Tubes new commissions, and the new Trace Gallery exhibition of objects and video footage from the Archive. 

At this time of new challenges and opportunities presented by online platforms and numerous modes of communication, it’s important to IOU that all activities continue to be as inclusive and accessible as possible. The team is still available on email to answer any queries, concerns or suggestions. Contact us on

We’ll be sharing updates on facebook, instagram and twitter as well as on the IOU website. If you’d like news and updates directly to your inbox, sign up to our e-newsletter.
