Esther Johnsons Chalk Trace at Stroud Arts Festival

Thursday 11 September 2014

Esther Johnson's Chalk Trace, which was made in 2013 for Channel 4's Random Acts, is being shown between 6th September and 5th October as part of the Stroud Arts Festival.

The centenary of Stroud's most celebrated writer Laurie Lee (1914 -1997) is being marked with a host of events throughout the year in Stroud and the surrounding valleys.

As a child in the 1950s, Ron Cockroft drew a chalk line from his school in Oldham to his home in Chadderton. Chalk Trace commemorates and reanimates his graffiti journey through a now much-changed network of streets.
