Boot Project

The Barley Fields Boot Project aims to bring back to life a solitary day from 1947 – Sunday 22nd June and then juxtapose with the same day in 2020 - Monday, 22 June.


We will gather in as much research as we can on the people, places and events of both days as a point of departure for artworks, media, installations and performances. 


We will collaborate with residents, students and businesses from today’s Barley Fields to archive, not only the past, but also the present and from here, to speculate on the future of this small microcosm of St Philips'.
