About The Event


Cartwright Hall Art Gallery
Lister Park, Bradford BD9 4NS

Dreams, and Songs to Sing is an exhibition by Bradford-based photographer Cath Muldowney, created in partnership with members of Bradford’s Gypsy and Traveller communities.


The installation is the culmination of work by photographer Cath Muldowney over five years of capturing portraits of members of Bradford’s Gypsy and Traveller communities.


Developed in partnership with community and members organisation Leeds GATE (Gypsy and Traveller Exchange) photos are included from iconic fairs and drives such as Lee Gap, at people’s homes and events. This is the first time these communities have been part of an inclusive photography display in the region.


Gypsy and Traveller people are often seen as one group, with much about their heritage and lives unseen and unknown. This exhibition showcases these communities and their place as a key part of the rich history of Bradford and West Yorkshire, and the distinct traditions and culture of the region through to the modern day
