Pit Profiles: Re-Profiled Exhibition

We are pleased to announce that delegates will have the opportunity to visit this exciting new exhibition opening at the Coalbrookdale Gallery on 21st June.

Pit Profiles: Re-Profiled is an absorbing and thought-provoking exhibition of miner’s portraits and their personal stories.

The collection is made up of evocative contemporary photographs of colliery workers taken by Anton Want along with a selection of drawings of pit workers by H Andrew Freeth, originally published in the 1940s and 50s.

The relevance of such an exhibition touches many areas, from workers experience to the visual arts, and we hope that many of you will take the opportunity to enjoy the exhibition.

The exhibition is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, perfect for conference breaks.
