27 June 2015 9.30-3.30 above covered market in Dursley
This exhibition and community workshop centred around photographs of the demolition of the Lister Petter factory site, which Catherine took over the Easter period of 2015, after strong winds had blown down the fencing round the site. A participatory art project was based round people’s memories of working there
People were asked to record their thoughts and feeling about the closure and demolition of the factory which employed so many people in Dursley for so many years, including two world wars. Visitors were asked to write about their ideas for what should happen in Dursley in the future, for employment, housing and other important issues for them and their families. Felt pens were used write ideas down on photocopies of the photographs on display, the photocopies which will make an art piece to be shown at a future date.
