Fig Tree Fair Trade/Slave Exhibition
Mar 27 @ 9:00 am – 9:00 pm

The FIG Tree slave trade / Fair Trade Exhibition will be on display at the Storey from 7th – 31st March 2017. The FIG Tree is the world’s first International Fair Trade Centre, founded in the world’s first Fair Trade Town, Garstang and now based at Lancaster Priory. The FIG Tree interactive exhibition was developed as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund project that explores Lancaster’s role as Britain’s 4th largest slave trade port during the 18th century, the area’s involvement in promoting fair trade as a Fairtrade District today and Quakers who were prominent in the abolition but also included Lancaster merchants and the slave trader Dodshon Foster.

To celebrate the end of the project, an exciting weekend of events will take place on 25th/26th March 2017, commemorating 210 years since the act was passed to abolish the British Transatlantic slave trade. As part of ‘210 Abolition – Lancaster slave trade port to Fairtrade City’ several events will take place in Lancaster including a Regency Banquet and Ball at the Borough; a service, lecture and chocolate workshops at The Priory; and Quaker worship and slave trade / Fair Trade Debate at the Friends Meeting House. The abolition of the slave trade act was passed exactly 210 years earlier on 25th March 1807.

Four abstract artists are held together in the complimentary styles and approaches of their work. Underpinning this group is a 40+ year friendship between painter Jude Trescatheric (Judy Slack) and multi-media artist Theresa Taylor, dating back to when they were undergraduates in Fine Art at The Storey in the 1970’s.

Bryn, Jude’s husband is a writer, historian and painter and Nigel Morris, painter and printmaker, has recently studied for a M.A. in Fine Art alongside Theresa at The University of Central Lancashire, is a good friend and colleague, utilising his own particular style and contrasting beautifully in style with Bryn and Jude’s work in particular.

This collaboration creates for more than the sum of its parts and demonstrates both a breadth and depth of understanding of the artistic processes within the conversation of abstraction.

Behind The Wall (Revealing Heritage)
Mar 28 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Mirador’s heritage and arts programme, Behind The Wall, is a colourful story which reveals the remarkable history of the Lancaster textile empire, Standfast & Barracks site in Lancaster.
But this is no ordinary exhibition. In an unusual move, Mirador, a new Lancaster-based arts and heritage company, has attracted some of the country’s most creative minds to bring the Caton Road site’s story to life – from its birth as a carriage and wagon works and its role as an internment camp in World War One to its nine decades as an international fabric printing company.

Associated events include a lunchtime talk on March 10 and walking tour of the exhibition on April 7 (both at 1pm and free but must be booked in advance on 01524 64637), and a free drop in family workshop with Bonker*s & Clutterbucks on March 25 from 11am-3pm.
