Help us create an exhibition about Preston!
Using our own photographs as a starting point we will create a refreshingly honest and thought provoking art exhibition-cum-alternative-information-centre celebrating the real Preston, past, present and future.

Please bring along your Preston-themed creations in any medium from photography, painting, drawing and sculpture to writing, knitting and jewellery. The exhibition will grow daily thanks to your contributions. Add your personal observations and fascinating facts to The People’s Map and fill out an unusually entertaining Preston Survey.

The exhibition will include selected Photography Competition images and photographs of Preston by The Caravan Gallery.
