GAS Projects have been working with communities and organisations to commission ten unique artworks that tell the stories of local people past and present. The artworks have been inspired by a combination of conversations and workshops with local people, as well as archive research about specific locations. The trail also showcases the work of some of Gloucester’s most valuable and well-loved community organisations including the Podsmead Hub, The Venture, the Friendship Café and the Gloucestershire Heritage Hub.

Starting at Podsmead Hub at 10am, we will walk to visit the ten artworks that loosely follow the trainline into Gloucester. We will be stopping for lunch a free lunch at The Venture, White City at 12:15pm, and finish at the Gloucestershire Heritage Hub at 3pm for refreshments and a chance to speak to the artists and take part in a creative workshop. You need not embark upon the whole walk – feel free to join us at any point along the way…

Many of the artworks have an accompanying audio element, so bring a smart device and headphones to enjoy the full experience!

Book your space here, or just turn up on the day.

The Word Walk has been generously funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, Blackbridge CCBS and Voices, and is part of the wider Gloucester Art Weekend & Platform (GAWP!) which was funded by Arts Council England, Gloucester City Council, Gloucester City Homes and Create Gloucestershire.
