Simon Martin: Your Town – One Year On

2nd December 2017 @ 11:00 am - 9th January 2018 @ 2:00 pm

Photographer Simon Martin returns, one year on, to turn No.34 into a temporary portrait studio.  Once again photographing people while asking them what they think of Sittingbourne, what they want for it or from it and what hopes they have for the place.

Your Town, created and shown at the end of last year, had the local community coming together to express their thoughts and feelings on the town they live in.

You can read more about Simon Martin’s Your Town 2016 residency & exhibition in our blog.

This year has seen a lot of changes in Sittingbourne, with the changing face of retail in the high street, a General Election and the start of the regeneration project.

Have your views changed since 2016? Or perhaps you get the chance to participate last time?  Everyone’s views are welcome.

Come along during Simon’s residency at No.34 on Saturday 2 December & Saturday 9 December (11am to 2pm) and share your thoughts, hopes and wishes for Sittingbourne as a place to call home.

The portraits and texts will remain on display in the Window Gallery throughout December and into January 2018.
