FLUX Rotherham in partnership with Rotherham Museums, Arts & Heritage Service are looking to commission a piece of work which gathers and shares recollections of the 1984 -5 Miner’s Strike.
We’re looking for imaginative, thoughtful proposals and want to work with people who will gather and share Rotherham stories with care and creativity.
In 2024 it will be 40 years since the historic 1984-5 miners’ strike which took place, the largest industrial dispute the UK has ever seen. Rotherham and South Yorkshire were a focal point of strike activity; the strike began at Cortonwood Colliery, near Rotherham, and the key confrontation of the strike took place at Orgreave Colliery, near Waverly. This is a nationally and internationally significant history, right on our doorstep.
Closing: 5pm Wednesday 22nd November 2023
