Join jeweller and jewellery historian Roberta Bernabei in the creation of a new series of brooches as part of her Loughborough Jewels project. This participatory project seeks to share and preserve memories of the Market Town of Loughborough.

You will be asked to bring along an image, photograph or object that relates to your memories of Loughborough, and Roberta will take a record of your object and ask you to describe it and its significance to you and the town. This will form the basis for a brooch design, that Roberta will make and that you will be able to collect at the end of the project. To participate please book a session using the links above.

Each brooch will take its form from a window frame found in the town and will be completed with imagery and words given to Roberta by each of the participants. As the brooches are finished they will join part of a special exhibition installation. At the end of the exhibition all participants will be able to collect and keep their brooch.

The exhibition will be available for viewing at the following times:

Thursday 28 January
11am - 4pm

Friday 29 January
11am - 4pm

Saturday 30 January
10am - 1pm

Roberta will also be running a special workshop for children aged 5+ and their families. Click here to find out more. Please be aware that parents/guardians DO NOT need to book a ticket in order to attend this family workshop.

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet

For & Against: Art, Politics and the Pamphlet is a collaborative project between Radar and Loughborough University academics Dr Gillian Whiteley and Dr Jane Tormey, RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa).

This engaging programme responds to research into the political pamphlet and the relevance of the pamphlet for contemporary art practice. It has comprised a series of public workshops, a symposium, a Charnwood Museum exhibition and Pamphlet Day, a day-long public event in the town centre. Jane Tormey and Gillian Whiteley are working on a forthcoming edited book, ‘Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer’, to be published in the RaRa series by Bloomsbury.

This exhibition shares elements of this project, including new pamphlets by artists Patrick Goddard, Ferenc Gróf and Rory Pilgrim, commissioned by Radar; a selection of historical pamphlets from the Art of the Pamphlet exhibition; documentation of a series of pamphlet workshops led by artists Freee, Ruth Beale, Ciara Phillips and Little Riot Press and artworks inspired by For & Against workshops led by artists Chiara Dellerba and Sarah Green, and writer Alison Mott.
