Back in 10
Back in 10… is all about shops, Black Country Shops: Morrall’s Menswear, Gripton’s Radio, Preedy’s Tobacconist, Wiltshire Pawnbrokers, and Sidebotham’s Trap Shop. We will delve into their histories, unearth the stories of the people and the shops of the past and discover how we relate to them today.
During late-July into August, artists from different backgrounds working in a range of art forms will use new approaches to explore the spaces whilst in residence at Black Country Living Museum. They will be supported by graduates from the University of Wolverhampton alongside BCLM staff and volunteers led by Black Country Touring. Together we will create short performances in a selection of the shops offering something new to audiences.
We’ll be resident on site, and visible developing material over a four-week period, 24 Jul – 17 Aug. We will present work cumulatively on the following Fridays in August: 3rd, 10th. 17th and 24th.
Come and join us… to see these shops in a whole new light.
