artist talk with nicky bird

Saturday 26th March

2.00 - 3.00pm

Join us for a FREE talk with the Artist Nicky Bird to celebrate the opening of our finale Exhibition 'Going through the Mill'.

Nicky will guide you around our exciting new exhibition as you explore her commissioned work.

Nicky is an artist whose work investigates the contemporary relevance of found photographs, and latent histories of specific sites, investigating how they remain resonant.

‘Going Through the Mill’ will feature never before-seen photographs of the Barrow Paper Mills, alongside new artworks created and coordinated by artist Nicky Bird in collaboration with Sankey Volunteers, the women’s history group and former Barrow Paper Mill workers.

In line with current government guidance, we recommend wearing a face mask if possible/preferable and we will ensure the space is well ventilated & hand sanitiser is available too.


This artist talk will take place at Cooke’s Studios, 102-104 Abbey Road, Barrow, LA14 5QR
