International Networks & Local Landscapes

The symposium kicked off yesterday with a great start at the our library space. Our first international visitors arrived safe and sound and we welcomed students from Pakistan and there tutor. Rick Lowe was very excited to be in Pendle and it was fantastic to see him again. 

The installation exhibition was very well attended on a Wednesday evening with a few local people coming to find out more. Williams idea of people installing the postcards worked really well and there was much discussion about the images from artists in Lahore, Houston and around the UK. the students also shared a great film (which we will post) of all the students that have visited UCLan and spent time in Pendle, some great experiences of Pendle Hill, eating fish and chips and delivering and taking part in workshops with local people.

Here's William giving an introduction to the Inspire programme, links to In-Situ and postcards.

Installation begins, not laziness on our part or anything. Actually it made participants look at the work more as people picks ones they like to install.

Talking with delegates about the work.

A lovely evening meal to finish off where we catch up with Rick and found out how small the world really is.......random connections across the globe.
