Yesterday the China Europe International Design Culture Association (CEIDA) announced the poster selection for the Making Intangible Cultural Heritage Visible competition and I'm thrilled to say my poster was selected !
This competition received a total of 1,078 works from 42 countries. The selected 100 outstanding works will be exhibited in China, Belgium and the United Kingdom.
My work looks at my own local heritage and my home town of Wigan and how music and industry, place and time all intertwine. This is a topic close to my heart, not necessarily in line with my research trajectory, but when I saw the competition call for entries, I knew I wanted to visually explore my own heritage and create something which was authentic and meaningful for me. In that sense I am able to relate it back to my research in that I believe authenticity is a key to ethical creative practice. Regardless, I'm proud of this work and so happy to be part of this exhibition.
The results were announced here:
