Barrow Pride of Place Project will see The Caravan Gallery take over a stall in Barrow Market Hall to transform it into an alternative visitor centre and crowdsourced exhibition for the festival.

Would you like to take part in an exhibition about Barrow?

Come and help photographers Jan and Chris from The Caravan Gallery make a joyful exhibition about where you live!

They’re turning part of Barrow Market into an evolving temporary exhibition, quirky museum and alternative visitor information centre between 

Please bring along anything with a Barrow connection to the market to display in our exhibition e.g. your own artwork, old or new photos, films, poems, stories, memorabilia, sculptures, found items – the more unusual the better!

We want YOU to join in and help us! Make your mark on the The People’s Map of Barrow, create your own postcard of Barrow or write down some memories to share.

Keep up to date via the Barrow Pride of Place Project Facebook group, posters, social media and website.

About The Caravan Gallery

The Caravan Gallery is a collaboration between artists and photographers Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale, geared towards documenting the reality and surreality of the way we live today. It is based out of a mobile exhibition space that engages with people and places, covering areas that are often outside the fold of conventional art galleries. They use colour photography to create accessible but thought-provoking images which frequently celebrate overlooked and occasionally bizarre aspects of everyday life. They believe in – as curator Sara-Jayne Parsons puts it –  Doing things with people rather than at them.
