An afternoon of exploration, reading, discussion and reflection to consider alternative archives and unique systems of recording inspired by both place and practice, with readings and presentations by cultural geographer Dr David Matless (University of Nottingham) and Bromley House Library artists in residence David Gilbert and Kate Genever. Included in the event is an opportunity to visit the ongoing archive work within the library and a tour of the current exhibition and library.

The event is a precursor to a longer process of exploration of the archives and archival processes at this unique and fascinating library, a hidden gem in the centre of Nottingham.

 

How can you picture a place but never hold it still with an anchor of description? is supported through CVAN EM’s project The Start of Something.

The Start of Something is a project which, through conversation, seeks to bring people in the East Midlands together to explore a common goal, share experience and work collaboratively, ultimately to make things happen. Proposals for new conversations are invited at any time and CVAN EM will consider how it might support a conversation to take place to benefit the widest community and make the greatest difference within the region. Let us know if you would like to propose a topic.
