A Sense of Place

Free Entry


Friday 21st June - Thursday 19th September 2013

Through The Higgins’ Audience Development Project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, ten community groups from Bedford have explored their perception of ‘place’ in A Sense of Place. The exhibition, curated by artists Alex Julyan and Lucy Wilson brought together works created by each group. The groups have all had a relationship with The Higgins Bedford for some time and include family carers, adults with learning disabilities, first-generation Italian migrants, members of the Polish British Integration Centre and people in a new housing area.


You can see work by Carers in Bedfordshire, one of the 10 community groups that have participated in A Sense of Place, at the Tourist Information Office from 21st May 2013 until the 25th July 2013 and then at Borough Hall from 25th July 2013 until 1st October 2013.
