After a very successful Pride Of Place Project in Sunderland last year, The Caravan Gallery artists Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale have returned to the North East to launch their Sunderland Pride Of Place Project book. Celebrating all things Wearside, it commemorates the massive array of artwork and contributions local people provided for an exhibition about their city. The book is launched at The Northern Gallery For Contemporary Art on Wednesday 22nd June.

In early 2015, with their iconic yellow mobile gallery in tow, Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale embarked upon their Pride of Place Project Tour exploring national and local identity. The following 18 months saw them visit six towns and cities spanning the length and breadth of England and Wales with Sunderland as their first destination.

The Sunderland Pride Of Project book itself is a celebratory documentation of what was seen as a massively successful project for the city and acknowledges the fantastic public response. The 122 page lavishly illustrated book includes images by The Caravan Gallery, and will be on sale for £5 at the launch along with copies of extra{ordinary} for £20. So celebrate Sunderland and take home a lasting memory of what Sunderland is now, as the city keeps reaching for even bigger and better things.

The Caravan Gallery – Sunderland Pride of Place Project book launch takes place at NGCA, Sunderland on Wednesday 22nd June.
