The Elephant in The Close - with Daniele Sambo
Have you heard the story of the Elephant in the Wide Close? Did you know that Shirley's close was once called Clarkston's close and that all the streets in Lanark changed names during different times?
Make Your Way Artist Daniele Sambo has spent the past month picking and regrouping images and information from the local archives of Lanark. Please join Daniele in The Tolbooth for a small exhibition of his findings.
If you have them, please bring along your own stories and photos (past and present) to be scanned and added to your local archive.
Friday 17th March - Saturday 18th March, 10am - 5pm
The Tolbooth, 4 High St, Lanark ML11 7EX
Make Your Way is a new project encouraging local people to walk and cyclemore whilst exploring the rich heritage of their local area. The project is focussed on the communities of Larkhall, Lanark, Carluke, Stonehouse and Glassford, and includes multiple ways for people to get involved, including activities like Dorodango mud ball challenges, walks with periscopes, art workshops, creative place name activities and creating new art installations to mark certain walking routes.
If you would like to get involved in any of the events, or have information you would like to share about your area then get in touch with the Make Your Way team via firstname.lastname@example.org
You can keep up to date with the project via the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership website www.clydeandavonvalley.org
