Airship Dreams: Escaping Gravity

Airship Dreams: Escaping Gravity Blog logo

Airship Dreams: Escaping Gravity is an artistic enquiry into Bedford’s identity as the historical centre of the UK’s airship industry, led by artist Mike Stubbs. Following a call-out to the local community to share memories, artefacts and ideas around the airship for an online archive, the project will culminate in a two-fold exhibition at Higgins Bedford in July 2021, which will bring together innovative digital contemporary art and exciting new community sourced displays, presenting and celebrating the pioneering vision of airship development of the decades.

Supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England, Bedford College, Harpur Trust and Airship Heritage Trust.
