Artspace on The Concourse

29 July - 9 August 2020

The Stories of Strangers exhibition explores how art can mean different things to different people through storytelling and wants to know what you see through your unique goggles by inviting you (the 'Strangers') to tell the story you see in the art.

Audience stories, poems, and other imaginings are presented alongside the art (online) for visitors to contemplate, compare, and enjoy. Stories are currently being collected and uploaded to this website, and visitors to the exhibition will also be invited to tell their stories. All abilities welcome!

The exhibition encourages visitors to bring their own mobile device (tablet or smartphone) to read the stories of strangers as they peruse the art in the gallery.


Trinity says "There have been some beautiful stories, poems and other imaginings contributed. Some can bring a tear, others make you laugh. It's amazing the different things people will see and feel when they look into a piece of art."


A few pieces have been brought to life with Augmented Reality (AR) and you'll need your smart device to experience this very cool hidden feature embedded in the artwork.
