Andrea Armstrong has written about the Historical Context work package’s contribution to our annual Imagine event:
The annual Imagine event was hosted by the cultural work package this year and consisted of exhibits and workshops from each work package on the theme of everyday culture and voice. From the historical work package, Andrea Armstrong and Ben Kyneswood organised exhibits and two workshops:
- Re-gilding the ghetto: pictures of life in North East England from the 1970s to the present day (Andrea Armstrong, Gary Craig, Yvonne Hall and Kath Smith) – The aim of the workshop was to critically discuss and examine a range of arts and cultural artefacts from the 1970s to 2016.
- Photographic exhibition (Ben Kyneswood) – Attendees were shown a series of photos of Coventry and asked to select two images and write a narrative from the perspective of the people in the photos.
