TRANSPORTED was a three day outdoor arts event in Fleetwood from 16 - 18 July. The event centred around the people of Fleetwood, with a focus on the gains, losses and intentions of the community.

When – 16 – 18 July
Where – Marine Hall Gardens and The Mount 
Times – 11am & 4pm 

The event featured In Memoriam, a flag installation by internationally acclaimed artist Luke Jerram. The installation was a temporary memorial for the public to visit and remember all those lost to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rites of Passage- 11am and 4pm each day. Transported was opened and closed each day by a local resident, who was invited by the Spareparts Team.

A specially commissioned soundscape created by sound artist Anthony Davey was played across the weekend.

In Memoriam

In Marine Hall Gardens were thrilled to  host the large-scale installation piece by acclaimed artist, Luke Jerram. In Memoriam has been created as a memorial to those lost in the COVID-19 pandemic and pays tribute to the NHS staff and volunteers who have worked so tirelessly to care for so many. 

In Memoriam is intended to be an evocative symbol of local, national and international solidarity and offers a contemplative space, combined with a sensory experience that chimes so relevantly to our themes. It offered 24-hour access across the three-days to enable visitors wishing to attend at more quieter times, to do so.

Flag UP

Fleetwood residents were invited to share their experiences of the past year via our Flag Up participation project.

Along with our partners LeftCoast we  asked residents to consider their gains, losses and intentions from the past year to share with us. These entries were included in our Flag Up participatory artwork which was on display over the weekend.

Uncharted

Sound Artist Anthony Davey was commissioned to create an audio artwork, to be played from up high across the grassy banks of The Mount, where visitors were invited to sit and listen to the work, while experiencing the installation pieces at Marine Hall Gardens from a fresh perspective.

Playing daily during the hours of 11-4pm, the audio included conversations, stories and quotes from Fleetwood residents on their recent experiences connected to loss, gains and future intentions. The tapestry of sound and words featured songs that residents suggested were meaningful to their experiences across the year.

Daily Opening & Closing

We opened our daily activity, at 11am and closed at 4pm with a gesture that connected to our origins; connecting arts programming with transport festivals.

Parades have always been a key feature at Tram Sunday. While it wasn’t possible to have a large-scale community and vehicle parade this year, each day we bookended with a small ceremonial act to open and close TRANSPORTED.
