Pride of Place is an amazing project organised by The Caravan Gallery which is a collaboration between artists and photographers Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale in partnership with local arts organisations in the UK. Part evolving exhibition, part alternative visitor information centre, these projects give local people an opportunity to explore their surroundings in a creative way by contributing to the exhibition.

So far the projects have taken place in Portsmouth, Oxford, Litham St Annes, Liverpool, Wirral, Huntley, Guernsey and now Southampton – with the support of  an Arts Council England Strategic Touring grant.

  1. What an absolutely stunning idea. And it looks as though lots of people are participating. Hooray for “local” art, and hooray for the people who organize such events. I wish I was there to prowl through it all.

  2. Great photographs SOL. I like all the ideas here. The map where people can add their own experiences and knowledge is wonderful. Each of us should do that. We then get a very personal ,”map,” of our very own Southampton. Being a teacher of junior children and interested in local history and geography, I have got children to personalise a map of their local area in this way.
    Now,a personal question SOL. Is that you in the last photograph? You don’t need to answer.
