DTC were pleased to participate in the first two of this year’s Artwalk around the city.
We were delighted to be hosted at both events by Theatre Royal Wakefield Cafe on Westgate.
In January, DTC showcased Edith Grace Mackie and were joined by staff and students of Mackie Hill School who read some of their poems in response to “What Mackie Means to Me”.
We exhibited Edith’s life through photographs, paintings, letters. We also exhibited Jessica Rowbottom’s collection of photographs from now derelict Clayton Hospital, where the team visited in honour of Edith, who’s adult life was spent at the children’s ward, visiting and caring, both emotionally and financially and whom the wing was named after.
In March, we showcased just some of the women that DTC has secured Blue Plaque funding for and had a creative blue plaque and card making workshop.
