‘The Gates’ – four streets at the heart of Gloucester packed with heritage – will all be getting a fresh perspective as children from six local primary schools work with local artists and collaborators to create a child’s eye map of this historic city centre.
Artist Catherine Hawkridge and friends from Gloucestershire Archives and the Gloucester Civic Trust will take the schools to key locations to collect impressions and make artwork that will create the new map and be exhibited at The Folk of Gloucester in September.
(The school tours are not open to the public – we just wanted to share this lovely project involving Gloucester’s young people – and we hope to see you at the exhibition 1-15 September).
This project is part of Gloucester Views, a Voices Gloucester partnership project supported through Gloucestershire Archives – Heritage Hub, and funded by Historic England.
