Join photographer Cath Muldowney and Community Content Producer, Sarah Deane, for a guided tour of the exhibition Dreams and Songs to Sing, an exhibition about the Gypsy Traveller community in Bradford. Cath will talk to you about her work photographing the community and building trust and confidence. Sarah will talk about her work around collecting the stories and objects in the show.
