The Town Hall Dialectogram

13 December – 28 February

The Town Hall Dialectogram is the last of our year-long programme of exhibitions for the co-curated space.  Realised over a 2 year period and led by renowned dialectogram-maker, Mitch Miller, the ‘dialectogram’ is a large-scale drawing of people and places, that involves individuals, groups and communities directly in the stories that shape the drawings. Over the course of the project, Mitch met with local people, conducting interviews, conversations, drawings of buildings, people, places, visiting archives and collections, encouraging individual and group contributions to his large-scale drawing.

From those with specialist knowledge of the Town Hall and its history, through to the memories of the many people who worked, performed, and exhibited there, as well as the voices of those newly introduced to the building’s history, the arising imagery reflects something of the Town Hall’s past activities, objects, stories, as well as future ideas and aspirations for its new life.
