Save Event: Your History of the Future

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival has teamed up with contemporary artist Gillian Hobson and Golden Square Shopping Centre to create a unique digital moving image work celebrating the town of Warrington.


Using over 1000 images gathered from key locations across Warrington's 24 boroughs, the film explores their similarities, differences and shared histories from a visitors perspective presented as a kaleidoscopic journey of colour and image.

Your History of the Future is currently on display at Golden Square Shopping Centre and organisers have called on members of the public to get involved with the project by nominating some of their favourite places across town.

Unfolding over time the work proposes an evolving story about the impossibility of knowing and the ways in which place may be constantly reimagined. Seeking to capture an essence of place that moves between the particular and the general, the old and the new, the familiar and the unfamiliar becomes a dynamic vista: homes and commercial properties, entertainment and worship spaces, roads and waterways, intersect and collide.

People’s relationships with their surroundings is a central theme to Gillian’s vision, so asking members of the community to get in touch with their favourite locations or landmarks has been a key part of the process.

Your History of the Future is currently on display at Golden Square Shopping Centre, Warrington until 31st August.
