Hundred Heroines HQ has moved to Gloucester and to celebrate, we want to enlist your help to create a photographic archive for the future, an archive that showcases Gloucester in the 2020s.

The historical city of Gloucester has 2061 streets and we want to see a picture from every single one. 

With Glostorama! you have the chance to be a part of documenting the city through photography while meeting new friends along the journey.

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals and organisations to join us in creating the archive.  The result of Glostorama! won’t just be views of streets, but an eclectic mix of details, urban landscapes, people, wildlife and anything else people want to photograph.

What’s it all about?

Hundred Heroines HQ has moved to Gloucester and to celebrate, we want to enlist your help to create a photographic archive for the future, an archive that showcases Gloucester in the 2020s.

We are looking for enthusiastic individuals and organisations to join us in creating the archive. The result of the Glostorama! won’t just be views of streets, but an eclectic mix of details, urban landscapes, people, wildlife and anything else people want to photograph.

Over six months we will be offering prompts, workshops and talks to get you on your photography routes…Once we have an image of every street in Gloucester, we’ll stage an exhibition in the city for 2022.  The pictures will also be added to an online, living archive of the future.

The exhibition will be an opportunity for everyone to see their work and for people outside the community to experience local perspectives in Gloucester.

A brief history…

The project is inspired by Geoff Nicholson’s Whitbread short-listed novel, Bleeding London, in which a character named Stuart London walks the complete length and breadth of London; we’ve transported the project to Gloucester.  And Geoff will be providing tips, as well as leading some walks in Gloucester during the project.

Two members of the Hundred Heroines team led a similar project in London (2014) and some of the boards from the exhibition are shown below.
