This event is a series of guided tours on Saturday 2nd October and 16th October as part of our Black History Month programme with Artist EVEWRIGHT. He will take you on a tour of Tilbury Bridge Walkway of Memories, a site-specific art installation, comprised of images, documents, audio recordings and memorabilia adorning the bridge that passengers of the Empire Windrush first walked across as they entered Britain in 1948. Attending the live tour will give you an insight into how the installation was created and extra stories about the lives of the people who's photographs and documents are exhibited within the installation. This art and sound installation may invoke a multitude of emotions.
Visitors are invited to download a copy of our Exhibition Guide on arrival to the art and sound installation. Scan the QR code situated on the poster at the entrance of the exhibition with a summary of each story and links to the audio. You can also access the stories by scanning the QR codes on images across 22 listening windows placed throughout the installation. (Please bring your own device and ear/headphones).
