This City's Centre

People who live within a 10 minute walk of Exeter Cathedral are being called to take part in a new art project that will be shown at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum.

The project is called This City’s Centre, and will explore the different points of view offered by the homes, streets and vistas of central Exeter to create a contemporary portrait of an English rural city.

Participants don’t need any experience at all, just a willingness to share their thoughts on the view from their window and what the city means to them. General contributions will remain anonymous, but Devon-based art collective, Blind Ditch, who are running the project, are also looking for a particular group of 20 people to work with in more depth.

If you are interested in sharing your views as part of the installation and performance email info@thiscityscentre.net for more information.

There will be an open public meeting at Exeter Phoenix at 6pm on March 21 where you can ask the Blind Ditch team more about the project and what it will involve.

All city residents are invited to upload a photograph of their window view and a thought about it to the growing gallery on the project website at www.thiscityscentre.net

Look out for the Blind Ditch team on the Exeter streets over the coming weeks as they circulate round the city gathering your views for the project.
