Of Pigeons and Sheds

A couple of sort-of allotment-related items coming up in Stoke-on-Trent's Conjunction contemporary arts festival. One on pigeons, another focusing on a shed...

"Fiona Long: 'Pigeon Scare' (Fat Cat Cafe Bar, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent)...

Fiona Long humorously examines our ambivalent relationship with pigeons. Do we want to scare them away from our crops and our buildings, or are the pigeons actually scaring us?"

Andrew Holmes: 'Lych Gate' (Hanley Park, 18th Nov - 21st Dec)...

"Working with the staff, friends and visitors of Hanley Park, Andrew Holmes will be creating a hand-built meeting place / shelter / sculpture using materials reclaimed from the demolition sites and waste grounds of Stoke-on-Trent"

  1. I met Andrew on Friday. It seems 21st Nov is the best day to visit, when the structure should be in the park and ready for visitors.
