As you may have seen, I’ve been in residence as an artist/researcher at Sunny Bank Mills since the new year. The project is funded by LEEDS 2023 and has seen me exploring a range of archives and resources to find hidden stories in and around LS28.
The culmination of this project is a Sharing Stories event at The Old Woollen on Sunday 10 April. It’s an interactive family-friendly event from 12-4pm. There’ll be a range of ways for you to share your own stories, and I’ll also be sharing the poetry that I’ve written as part of the project.
I spoke about this in the Yorkshire Evening Post at the weekend. And immediately following my Sharing Stories event, there’s an open mic fundraiser for Ukraine. So, it’ll be a whole day of stories, performances, and sharing.
You can read more about the event on the Sunny Bank Mills website. And you don’t need to book in advance – just turn up whenever you feel like it…! See you then, hopefully.
