Portsmouth Pride of Place Project

18th April – 18th May 2011. Our first Pride of Place Project was a month-long evolving exhibition featuring new and archival images of the city and Portsmouth Video Portraits by The Caravan Gallery. Visitors were invited to complete the display by annotating a People’s Map and adding their own contributions to The People’s Wall and a display of artefacts found on the streets of Portsmouth. Students from Mayfield School created postcards and souvenirs and local writer Maggie Sawkins led a creative writing session inspired by our images of the city. The outcome resembled a dynamic and refreshingly anarchic visitor information centre.  A selection of images from the exhibition and our Portsmouth Video Portraits are on permanent display in No Place Like Pompey at the City Museum.
