Lore and the Living Archive goes live: Touchstones, 5 May – 30 June 2018

Well, after a hot, sweaty opening day at Touchstones, we're delighted to announce that Lore and the Living Archive is open, running until the end of June 2018.

It's the culmination of two years of research, development, delving through Doc's archive and pleas to pose, so we're really interested in what you make of it. Hopefully you'll have chance to make it down, and if you do, please do let us know what you think.

The exhibition will be travelling to Cecil Sharp House in 2019, before moving onto Whitby, and we're hoping to have some other venues in the pipeline, too, so keep your eyes peeled.

And if you're in the Greater Manchester area, make sure you get down to the gallery on Saturday 26 May for the Wakes Day celebration: talks from Doc and the artists, clog dancing workshops, music, storytelling, crafts – and a beer festival! For more information, click here.

Obviously, we don't want to reveal too much of the exhibition and give the game away, but here's a selection of installation and opening photos, courtesy of Seth Tinsley.
