Called in at the Wakefield Cathedral on Saturday afternoon to see the finished results of the Exhibition. The Best installation in Wakefield in a long time
In The Wakefield Cathedral 5000 clay sculptures over the last four days have been installed for a
Project that was ongoing through 2010 by Generation x Change.

'Harvesting our Hopes and Memories' is an intergenerational art project displaying 5000 clay sculptures made by the people of Wakefield District and has been inspired by Antony Gormley's 'Field for the British Isles'.

All participants, from schools and community groups have made their own clay model during intergenerational workshops run by Generation Xchange to symbolise their own hopes and memories. The exhibition is a representation of what the whole project is about; older and younger generations coming together to help build a more cohesive community.
Large groups please contact the Cathedral before your visit 01924 373
