Walls Have Voices Photography And Book

Walls Have Voices Book

Walls Have Voices is an anthology of specially commissioned new writing by local Blackpool writers that was created through a series of site-specific writing workshops exploring the ‘off the beaten track’ built heritage of the town.

The writers visited the Grundy Art Gallery, Central Library, the Grand Theatre and Layton Cemetery with their mentors Eleanor Rees and Zoe Lambert and took part in writing tasks that ignited imaginative reactions to place, explored how we can apply language to the physical environment to see it anew and how society thinks about the value of public space.

Arts Development UK

Three years ago I was commissioned as the Photographer in Residence for the NALGAO (National Association of Local Government Arts Officers) annual conference which was held at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

The underpinning theme of the conference was the contribution that the arts and creative industries make in building sustainable communities and supporting regeneration.

The conference was a huge success and I had a fantastic time photographing keynote speakers, workshops and cultural study tours. Earlier this year, NALGAO rebranded itself as Arts Development UK and decided to come back to Blackpool for the first time since 2008. I’m pleased to say that I was asked back once again to undertake the role of Photographer in Residence.
