Exeter Residents share your views!
We are looking for a diverse group of central Exeter residents (and their views) to work with as part of This City’s Centre. Participants don’t need any experience at all, just a willingness to share the view from your window as inspiration for different aspects of the project. You can participate in a number of ways:
- We are looking for 20 people to contribute their views to become part of a video installation at RAMM running July-Sept 2013. We will make an HD video recording (of the view not you), and gather your thoughts about it and what the city means to you on an audio recording. Ownership of the views can remain anonymous if you wish.
- We are looking for 5 people to work with us in a more in depth way to make the final performance. You’ll be working some evenings and weekend days between May and September with Blind Ditch and associate artists, to create and perform in an event as part of the Exeter City Council’s outdoor arts festival UNEXPECTED 15-22 September 2013.
- If you just want to donate your window view and thoughts about it to the project – whether you live in central Exeter, the wider city, or any city centre, we’d love it if you could UPLOAD YOUR VIEWS to our gallery.
We are looking for views from terraced houses, student flats, basement apartments, Georgian mansions, homes on hills, next to the bypass, looking over the quay, from behind the football stadium, next to the mosque. Whether you’ve lived in Exeter all your life, or for a few months, we’d love to hear from you.
To express your interest please send us an email using the form below telling us roughly where you live on this map. Then UPLOAD YOUR VIEW – a photo taken from your window (include the window frame and some of your room in the image), along with a thought about it.
There will be an open public meeting at 6pm on 21 March at Exeter Phoenix, where you can ask Blind Ditch more about the project and what it will involve. For more information contact us by email or call/ text 07980 207372
