Networked Narrative: Leigh Banner Making Workshop

Banner Making at The Turnpike, Leigh

Saturday 3 June, 11am - 3pm
The Turnpike, Civic Square, Leigh, WN7 1EB

FREE, Booking Required  Book your place

Come to The Turnpike to make your own text banner in response to the question, "What is it that you want more than anything else?" We are opening up the question to anyone aged 25 and under, allowing their views of the world and their communities to be seen and heard.

The banners will be entered into our Text Art Competition and displayed throughout the venue or at Wigan S.T.E.A.M; giving young people an opportunity to express their own ideas and see their work displayed alongside the renowned artist, Mark Titchner. How to enter

Entries will be judged by Titchner; Wigan Evening Post & Wigan Today Editor, Janet Wilson; Sean Aidley, Business Development Manager of Fleet Dynamic, sponsors of the artworks in Wigan and Leigh, and a representative from Wigan Council.


The winner will be presented with a framed certificate signed by Mark Titchner at the Networked Narrative public launch event on Saturday 10 June, a £50 Hobby Craft gift card and a £25 iTunes gift voucher for themselves. 


Mark Titchner's video works, together with the text banners will be exhibited at Wigan S.T.E.A.M from Sat 10 June - Sat 15 July 2017.
