As part of the national Pierdom exhibition, which launched today at Turner Contemporary, we’ve created a micro-website with more details of the tour, an interactive map and public gallery where you can share your own ‘Pier Stories’ and photographs.
Please visit www.pierdom.com.
We’re interested in receiving your memories, unusual facts, anecdotes and photographs of British Pleasure Piers. Submitted work will form part of our Public Gallery and online archive where you can read other stories and add your own.
The Pierdom National Exhibition is supported by Arts Council England.
As part of my commission to produce work for the redevelopment of the Bristol Royal Infirmary, I”m putting out a call for submissions to create a public gallery of photographs. This is an opportunity to be part of a creative community-based project that will enhance the experience of the staff, patients and visitors of the BRI.
Submitted photographs will be displayed in an (see some of the samples above) and may also be incorporated in one of the final artworks, which will be displayed in new adult wards in the redeveloped Bristol Royal Infirmary when it opens in 2014.
If you live in the South West region, which is served by the BRI, why not get involved by
sending us a photograph which responds to the theme of community, sustainability and inspiring change. Think about what your local area means to you and find images that reflect the people, landscape and character of Bristol.
