Sandwell Pride of Place Project

The Caravan Gallery is excited to announce we will be working with Multistory as one of the lead artists for the Blast! Festival programme.

We will be touring the caravan around the six towns of Sandwell throughout 2018, and developing our Sandwell Pride of Place Project exhibition for Blast! Festival in 2019.

We will be making visits to Smethwick, Oldbury, Wednesbury, Tipton, Rowley Regis and West Bromwich between May and October 2018. Using our own photography, as well as stories, fascinating facts, objects and ephemera collected en route, we will work with the community to create a portrait of each town and its people. The end result will be brought together in a celebratory exhibition at Blast! Festival in West Bromwich.

Our first caravan outings in Sandwell are as follows:

Monday 7th May – Princes End Community Fun Day, Laybourne Park, Tipton
Tuesday 8th May – Oldbury Market
Wednesday 9th May – Tipton Library
Thursday 10th May – West Bromwich Outdoor Market
Friday 11th May – Wednesbury Market
Saturday 9th June – Cradley Heath Arts Festival (by Tesco Extra, Foxoak St)
Sunday 11th June – Lightwoods House, Adkins Lane, Smethwick, B67 5DP

We’ll be exhibiting some of our own observations of Sandwell alongside photos we’ve taken all over Britain. Please drop in and say hello! All welcome.

Further details and future visits will be confirmed soon, so please check our website regularly. You can also join our dedicated Facebook group if you would like to keep posted on our whereabouts.
