It has worked with local artists and residents to explore the areas’ local stories, memories and images.

Art in the park CEO Luisa Golob said: “Some of these spaces were secret hide outs, places of stories and intrigue.

“Others were home to a thousand pigeons, rubbish tips, playgrounds and battle fields.

“With the local community, young and old, we have been remembering, re-imagining and reigniting these unregistered spaces.”

Participants got involved through arts walks and creative workshops, gathering memories and exploring the landscapes and heritage of both Cuthbert Bank and Parkwood Springs.

The project was funded through a Heritage Lottery Fund ‘All Our Stories’ grant, a small grant programme which aims to give everyone an opportunity to get involved in their heritage.

Art in the Park will hold the special event in Hillsborough Park Pavilion on Sunday, January 19, from 12noon to 4pm.

The free event will include an exhibition of films, sound recordings and art work created during the project by local residents, alongside creative activities and refreshments. There will be stalls from local history projects and local groups, including the Walkey History Project and the Timewalk Project.

n Art in the Park provides arts activities in areas where there is little opportunity to engage. They offer free events and workshops focusing on visual arts and creative writing, including poetry, storytelling, textiles, sculpture, film making, painting, drawing and craft, for all ages and backgrounds.

The organisation aims to increase confidence and skills, reduce isolation, promote use of local spaces and increase pride and ownership over public space.
