Above the Noise ― 15 Stories from Bradford

Above the Noise is a new exhibition bringing together 15 stories from Bradford in a variety of forms — from words and photographs to sound installations and new artworks.

How do people react when they feel their home town is misrepresented?

For years, people in Bradford have been recording their own histories, forming cultural networks, and creating social change. Their stories show how established media can be bypassed or adapted.

In this exhibition, we have collaborated with people who live and work in the district to explore how communities can shape their experience of the place in which they live.

Join the conversation and add your own take on living, working or visiting Bradford.

A series of events and workshops will run alongside this exhibition. Visit scienceandmediamuseum.org.uk to find out more and plan your visit.

Above the Noise is part of the Bradford’s National Museum research project.

The project is a partnership between the University of Leeds and the National Science and Media Museum. It is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The research project is led by Dr Helen Graham (School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies), alongside Professor Will Gould (School of History) and Professor Seán McLoughlin (School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science).
