Description

PANEL DISCUSSION
This panel discussion will explore some of the topics raised within the project These Northern Types, including identity, place and social division. It is free but please do register to attend. Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start.

THESE NORTHERN TYPES
These Northern Types is an exploration of what Northern Identity means today. Oli Bentley, Director of Split Design, and his team of artists, writers, poets, academics and philosophers are on a year-long journey to understand what makes us who we are and how our relationship to place affects our identity.

Unwilling to simply take the old clichés as read, These Northern Types gets under the skin of our northern identity in an increasingly globalised community. Examining our culture, our rituals, our myths and our truths: from the origin of our famous Yorkshire grit, making do and mending, and our love affair with chip shop gravy (or curry sauce). Looking at the potential a strong sense of regional identity has in creating cultural division, and if, in an age of ever-easier access to global travel, communication and information, where we live even matters all that much anymore.

Oli and his team are have been working with community groups, industry leaders, metal workers, manufacturers, students and others to create a series of typographic artworks which explore the contrasts and contradictions within our identity. The collection of works combine the art of typography with a mix of traditional and experimental production methods, celebrating the North as a place where ‘stuff gets made’.

EXHIBITION
The exhibition is free to attend. It will be open on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10am-4pm throughout December and January.
