Event Type

Join artists and photographers Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale, and their unique mobile gallery on wheels, The Caravan Gallery.

Jan and Chris have been commissioned to carry out a Burnley Pride of Place Project and need your help to generate the content of an interactive community exhibition celebrating all things Burnley. The exhibition will be hosted in a town centre venue in early Summer 2024 to showcase the diversity and creativity of Burnley’s communities, past, present and future. In preparation The Gallery will be popping up around Burnley and Padiham, where Jan and Chris will be exhibiting their own photographs of Burnley along with some weird and wonderful observations from other parts of the UK. They are inviting local people to get involved and help showcase what makes Burnley truly unique. So come along and share local stories, photographs, artwork, crafts, films, music, memorabilia, stories, poems, books and objects that could be included in the exhibition.

Since 2000 The Caravan Gallery has exhibited in hundreds of locations nationally and internationally, from supermarket car parks to fancy museums and galleries, taking art to people and places many ‘normal’ galleries might find it hard to reach.

The Burnley Pride of Place Project is supported by funding from Arts Council England and is being run by Burnley Leisure & Culture in partnership with Mid Pennine Arts and Blaze Arts.
