Visit our new Community Gallery exhibition, exploring contemporary issues on homes and housing, asking us to consider the value of a council estate.  Who owns it and what is it really worth?  Why is the media image of the estate so different from the views of many of its residents, who love their homes and think they are great places to live?  Why are we demolishing so much good council housing and replacing it with private new builds?

Jane Brake and John van Aitken of the Institute of Urban Dreaming (IUD), who are based on the Pendleton estate in Salford, have been recording everyday life in the area since 2004.  This exhibition presents a selection of IUD’s extensive archive of video, photography, artworks, texts, textiles and everyday archaeology of the estate.We Love Kids in Museums

Promising Home is on display until Sunday 15 January 2017.
