the Darton Centre Project

Past - Present - Future

The Darton Centre project is completed and installed.  It will be officially be opened on Friday 2nd December.   The treasured old building of the Darton Urban District Council has been celebrated in the artwork produced for the New Darton Centre, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire through engagement with the community, local history group, children's centre, high school and former councillors and employees of the Darton U.D.C.  An artefact trail guides visitors through the various items of historical value salvaged from the former building and leads towards the artwork and oral history audio recording.

This looks exciting Catherine - look forward to catching up with you in Leeds in March - I seem to have lost contact with your blog and can't find out how to follow you! The new layout seems to have wiped out a few people I was following! I hope you got the info about my collaborative project and have something you can contribute! All the best
