Inspired by Alan Sillitoe’s Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, local people have been writing and sharing stories. Point your phone at Paul Warren’s wonderful drawings to see them animated!

This exhibition uses QR codes to launch animated stories on your smart phone. If you don’t have a smart phone, please let us know. We will arrange for a member of staff to show you the exhibit.

The stories were written by local people and illustrated by local artist Paul Warren. The animations were created by Joe Pick.

About the project

As part of our Words of Wisdom project for people aged 55+, writer James Walker and poet Andrew Graves ran workshops in locations across Nottingham. The result is a fantastic collection of stories and poems inspired by Nottingham legend Alan Sillitoe.

Words of Wisdom is funded by Arts Council England and the Baring Foundation. The project was devised by City Arts in partnership with UNESCO Nottingham City of Literature, Nottingham City Libraries and Nottingham City Homes.
