…marking time…along the Western Flyer is an exciting arts project being delivered by Swindon Borough Council’s Create Studios in its 30th anniversary year.
Funded by Swindon Travel Choices and led by artist Scott Farlow, the project is part of the new enhancements to the Western Flyer cycle and pedestrian route, which runs from Shepherd Street underpass in the town centre to Mead Way in West Swindon.
The project aims to increase the profile of the route by raising awareness of the rich heritage and social history that it passes through, and by using the archive of local photographer William Hooper (1864-1955).
…marking time…along the Western Flyer will involve three local neighbourhoods, the West Swindon, North Central and Town Centre localities. Throughout Autumn residents of all ages are invited to participate in imaginative activities at a number of free events and workshops that will explore the Western Flyer route to create and share new stories across Swindon. In Spring 2014 there will be a touring exhibition of short films, new photographs, web pages and a new app.
