Hidden Histories – event on Sat 29 June

  • 26th June 2019

On Saturday come and have a tour of Worcester experiencing art inspired by local history.

Over the past month we have been helping the Hidden Histories project by taking local groups on tours of the archives and by proving copies of maps, photos and other documents about the history of Worcester, such as the gloving industry. We wanted to inspire people with stories about places they were familiar with, and stories they may not know. Artists such as Jaime Jackson then used the sources with volunteers to create pieces of art which artists will share on Saturday.

The project is run by Equal Vision, with Click Click Collective, Jaime Jackson and Jenni Waugh.

The event runs from 1-5pm on Saturday, and is for all ages. Collect a trail leaflet from The Hive and explore the city’s past. Artists are located at five points where you can stop, including one in The Hive itself.
