GAWP! Word Walk

202402mar10:00am4:00pmGAWP! Word WalkA walk to view the ten public artworks that have been cocreated with communities between Podsmead and Gloucester city, ending with a ‘meet the artists’ session and workshop

Event Details

Gas Projects have been working with communities and organisations to commission ten unique artworks that tell the stories of local people past and present. The artworks have been inspired by a combination of conversations and workshops with local people, as well as archive research about specific locations. The trail also showcases the work of some of Gloucester’s most valuable and well-loved community organisations including the Podsmead Hub, The Venture, the Friendship Café and the Gloucestershire Heritage Hub.

Starting at Podsmead Hub at 10am, we will walk to visit the ten artworks that loosely follow the trainline into Gloucester. We will be stopping for lunch a free lunch at The Venture, White City at 12:15pm, and finish at the Gloucestershire Heritage Hub at 3pm for refreshments and a chance to speak to the artists and take part in a creative workshop. You need not embark upon the whole walk – feel free to join us at any point along the way…

Many of the artworks have an accompanying audio element, so bring a smart device and headphones to enjoy the full experience!

Book your space here, or just turn up on the day.
