PLACE AND MEMORY WARMLY INVITE YOU TO THE FOLLOWING EVENTS
Friday 11th October, 6pm to 8pm, Holy Trinity Church, Boar Lane Leeds.
The exhibition continues from Saturday 12th to 19th October inclusive, 10am – 3pm Monday to Saturday.
The Place and Memory artists, writers, and filmmakers have responded to the city of Leeds. Sharing personal and collective memories, they examine the hidden and overlooked corners of the city, finding beauty in unexpected places. Exploring graveyards, wastelands, woodlands, and a hospital’s echoing corridors, they have created drawings, installations, photographs, video, poetry, sculpture, and sound.
The evening will include a wind-up gramophone DJ set courtesy of artist Sandy Holden, and a poetry reading by writer, actor, and artist Nigel Stone.
