Middle Bound — Exploring the Social Fabric at the Heart of England is a collaborative workshop and exhibition directed by Patrick Waterhouse and Tim Wan with the support of Mauro Bedoni where we will explore communities and stories from The Midlands, both past and present.
 

Applications for workshop participants and contributors are now closed.

The workshop will explore questions like:
•What are the communities that make The Midlands what it is today, and how do they relate to each other?
•What are the stories we tell?
•How does ethnicity and heritage affect attitudes?

The workshop will function like an open studio, made accessible to everybody, where artistic and creative work can be viewed as it happens. Intended to foster creativity and encourage experimentation in an atmosphere of cultural exchange, conversation and freedom of expression with the goal of developing, conceptualising and building an exhibition that will be opening on 17th February–11th March 2018 at the QUAD Gallery.
