Tagging Communities Trails of Everton – July Schedule
We are on target with ‘Tagging Communities’ project – where our Veterans in Practice are buddying up to create new audio work with members of Blind Veterans UK, all about the heritage of Anfield and Everton.
Our workshops have already started but if you are keen to get involved then we would still love to hear from you! For more info check out: http://www.fact.co.uk/projects/tagging-communities.aspx
Here is our July Schedule – Go on have a gingle!
Wednesday 8th July: Heritage on-site visit with Historian Ken Rogers – Meet at Lock Up Tower, Everton, 2.30-4pm
Come and find out more about the archaeological dig to unearth hidden Everton architecture, due to take place on 18th July. Historian Ken Rogers will take us on a heritage tour of the site in preparation for the Big Dig event!
Saturday 18th July, 11am – 3pm : Recording the ‘Big Dig’ of Everton trail and archaeological community event
We will be starting the session with a tour from Ken Rogers at Village Street at 11am about the history of the Queens Head Hotel site where, in 1879, St Domingo’s church team became Everton Football Club
At Noon we will be recording a separate talk in the nearby park on the subject of the Lost Tribe of Everton.
Three of the famous old streets, now under the grass, are being planted out as wildflower street corridors. We will be able to record local sounds, as well as interview local residents about their memories of the Everton area.
Wednesday 22nd July, 1.30-4pm at FACT (please note earlier time!)
Meet our APP Developer for Tagging Communities
AND Artist AUDIO WORKSHOP with Lorena Rivero de Beer and Mark Loudon.
Come along and meet Jon from Citrus Suite Developers to talk through APP design and layout, particularly for our Veterans page!
Then we are delighted to have guest artists Lorena Rivero de Beet and Mark Loudon here to deliver an audio workshop based on their recent project which unfolds through the landscape from Everton to Tuebrook and is inspired by the picaresque Spanish novel and the history of the migrants in the area.
