Generation ‘Life in the Potteries’ exhibition
The exhibition is closed Monday – Wednesday.
Exhibition opening night: 7pm-9pm, Friday 29 July
The BCB Generation project have produced a series of works inspired by the social history of the old Spode pottery and celebrates the people who worked on the site and in nearby potteries.
After conversations with ex-pottery workers and searching through the Spode Museum Trust Heritage Centre archives, the group have each developed an artwork which reflects a different part of life in the Potteries. One such piece explores the relationship between the buildings on the Spode site and the people who worked in them every day. Another looks at the dialect which defines the city of Stoke-on-Trent.
The social history of the Potteries is as integral to the identity of Stoke-on-Trent as the bottle kilns and factory sites. It is vital that we find a way to preserve them. Throughout the exhibition we hope to draw out more stories about life in the Potteries, creating a lasting resource for the Spode Museum Trust Heritage Centre.
