Nantwich Civic Society at 50
14th November – 20th January 2018
This is an exhibition celebrating the work of Nantwich Civic Society, together with a selective look at buildings constructed in Nantwich over the last 50 years. The exhibition, which has opened in the Millennium Gallery and runs until Saturday 20 January 2018, celebrates the work of Nantwich Civic Society, which was founded in 1967.
The Society is a voluntary organisation, which campaigns to improve the environment and the quality of life in Nantwich. It encourages good quality design in new buildings and promotes the conservation of historic structures.
The exhibition tells how the Society was formed. This was at a time when the town of Nantwich was witnessing many dramatic changes, including the loss of buildings of historic and architectural importance.
Photographs in the exhibition provide a selective view on buildings constructed in Nantwich over the last 50 years to help stimulate thoughts and comments about modern architecture, and how new buildings might be designed in future, so that they can best enhance the town.
The exhibition is accompanied by a display of work produced by the Museum’s Dementia Friendship Group following sessions with artist, Kate Eggleston-Wirtz. Shoes were used as a medium for exploring personal journeys and the exhibition marks the culmination of a six month project.
Admission is free to the museum and exhibitions.
For further information contact: Nantwich Museum on email@example.com or telephone 01270 627104.
14th November – 20th January
An exhibition comprising art work produced following sessions led by artist Kate Eggleston-Wirtz exploring individual journeys.
Over a six month period, participants of the Museum’s Dementia Friendship Group used shoes as a medium for sharing and discussing the journeys that they have made. This was possible through a grant from Cheshire East’s Participatory Budget Fund.
