What we did
Multistory is one of the Black Country’s leading arts organisations. It works to connect local, national and international artists with the people of Sandwell and surrounding areas, making art that reflects their lives.
Barques PR worked with Multistory on the launch of Black Country Stories, a four-year project documenting everyday life in the region. The project culminated in an exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall, featuring 122 photographs, 400 archive images, oral histories and four documentary films.
Barques managed the PR for Black Country Stories, working with partners such as The New Art Gallery Walsall and Magnum Photography. During the campaign coverage was achieved in local publications such as the Express & Star, the Birmingham Mail and What’s On Live. Barques also worked with a number of national titles such as the British Journal of Photography, The Daily Telegraph and the Royal Photographic Society Journal, securing interviews and features.
