26 Sep Shapes of Water
People from Pendle and the surrounding areas are invited to join us to participate in Suzanne Lacy’s new artwork at the former Smith & Nephew Mill, Brierfield from September 29th – October 1st.
Residents can watch performances, take part in singing sessions, take tours, and share their stories as part of the three-day production of a new film exploring the past, present and future of the mill. You can even be an extra in the film! The people of Pendle are also invited to come to a large catered banquet on October 1st at the mill. We hope you will engage in a spirited community dialogue about the future of Pendle. It ends with a catered banquet for the first 500 people who sign up!
It forms an essential part of US artist Suzanne Lacy’s mass participation project and we would love you to be involved. Registration is essential to receive your special invite and instructions for what will be an amazing event, full of food and conversation!
Once one of the largest employers in the area, the mill is about to be transformed into a mix of uses. This artwork celebrates its history and the people who worked there, as we reflect on how the community might now shape its own future.
Led by the Pendle Community Cohesion Action Network (CCAN) and artists from the Brierfield group In- Situ, working with U.S artist, Suzanne Lacy, the event will feature musical entertainment, videos of local residents, and an opportunity to share family histories, cultures and conversation over food.
Registration is essential. After you register, your personal invitation will be sent by post that will contain all the details you’ll need to attend. If you are registering for others, we will need their names and addresses too.
