An exciting contemporary arts programme, inspired by the people, the landscape and the world changing innovations of Coalbrookdale, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

West Midlands based arts organisation Meadow Arts is delighted to announce a new exhibition and residency programme in partnership with the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust, funded by Arts Council England.

Shifting Worlds explores the impact of the Industrial Revolution and challenges our understanding of its legacy in an exciting programme of contemporary arts events, featuring a newly commissioned sculpture by international sculptor David Nash RA, an artist’s residency with the highly talented Faye Claridge, an interactive adventure from The House of Fairy Tales, plus autumn exhibition Landscape With Machines and symposium Reimagining the Industrial Revolution.

Shifting Worlds takes place at Coalbrookdale, the site of three of the ten exciting and varied museums that make up the Ironbridge Gorge Museums. The museums give a fascinating insight into the people, processes and landscape of the Industrial Revolution and its impact on the present day.
