Building Curiosities of Morecambe, Seaside Stone Tales and Sketches
Local Architect and Heritage Consultants Zoe Hooton and Jess Barrow will lead a quirky walking discovery tour of Morecambe, exploring ideas of what could and would have been. Asking, where does this leave Morecambe now?
The event ‘Building Curiosities of Morecambe, seaside stone tales and stories’, will take place on Wednesday 28th June from 19:00-20:00.
Sketching is encouraged, imagination mandatory. This event will involve moving around Morecambe and will take place outside, please bring appropriate clothing and comfortable footwear for walking.
Attendees will be meeting at Jewellers, The Arndale Shopping Centre in Morecambe.
Jewellers is a non-profit project aimed at supporting local creative practice through a programme of exhibitions, workshops, gatherings, events and talks.
Inspiring local people through local and international artists and thinkers and to support the development of Morecambe based projects through postgraduate-level support in the form of tutorials, talks, and workshops.
Split across two sites in the Arndale Centre, Jewellers are adding to a growing hub of creative culture in Morecambe’s town centre which includes: Good Things Collective, AC gallery, Morecambe Heritage Centre, and Cupid Studios.
Jewellers have a cinema setup, where they host screenings, talks, workshops and gigs. Facing out into the Arndale centre, the original jewellers’ cabinets host a rotation of exhibitions by local artists. Jewellers 2 is a smaller unit near Timpsons, where digital screen-based artworks are hosted, that are open during Arndale Centre opening hours.
Supportive of a decentralisation of the arts from major cities, and a redistribution of funds and access to free arts education across the UK. Interested in practices that might reflect the culture of the Northwest, particularly the unique energy of Morecambe Bay.
Jewellers is co-directed by Amy Dickson and Jamie Jenkinson.
