We’ll be welcoming Composer Patrick Dineen to the Redcar Palace today, and you’ll be able to come tomorrow and chat to him, as he’ll be with us all day. Patrick spent most of the first part of the year interviewing local people over Zoom to collate oral histories of life in and around Redcar, giving a voice to those our local communities. Working through many hours of interviews, Patrick has made a piece of work named ‘Not in a Room on our Own (A Social Life of Steel)’ Which is currently playing in the space alongside images we commissioned at the 2019 Steel Gala, alongside More recent images of the Paticipants by Kev Howard. The work can also be listened to online at :Soundcloud.com/patric123/sets/sound-artThe exhibition sits alongside our shop, Indoor garden and Postcards exhibition as well as new work by ceramicist Aphra O’Connor. Our space on the seafront in the Palace Hub is open every Tuesday -Sat 10-4 currently. We’d love to chat to you. ... See MoreSee Less
