Picture the Cally – Then & Now

Film and photography exhibition. This year the Cubed Collective have built upon last years arts engagement project for the festival ‘Picture The Cally’ but with a focus on the history of the area. The collective have been working with local groups exploring the changes the Cally has gone through by recording stories and memories from the local community.

We have also been running collage workshops with local groups using archive images as well as current images of the street to explore the Cally then and now.

Take a walk down the Cally Road to look at the collage art work made by local residents and stayed tuned to find out where the film screening will be taking place! @CubedCollective
