As part of our Heritage Lottery Fund project Market Tales we have opened a stall in Barrow Market. The stall showcases some of the photographs, film, audio and objects from the old, new and outdoor markets, collected during the initial stage of the Market Tales project. The work on show draws from a range of collections, including, the North West Evening Mail, Cumbria Archive, North-west Film Archive and personal collections. The stall also showcases a new sound piece made during a recent creative market sounds workshop with local music and sound organisation, Octopus Collective.
We also invite you to share any material related to Barrow Markets with us, be it photographs, film, audio, objects or memories. The stall will evolve over the weeks as new material is gathered. Digital, analogue and physical media are welcome!
