Welcome to our Smart Gallery @ Gipton Fire Station Museum & Gallery @ The Old Fire Station in Gipton
Gipton Fire Station has been renovated into a fantastic multipurpose community hub. Providing a base for six local charities, along with rooms available to hire, a cookery school and a café for all of the community to enjoy!
For 78 Year the Fire Station was at the heart of the community of Gipton. Come along to the Space2’s Pop up Museum at The Old Fire Station in Gipton and learn about this building’s history. Share your stories, pictures or memories linked to the Fire Station with us. Everything is considered for display and the entire exhibition depends on people’s desire to share with other museum visitors their special possessions. Artefacts with a back-story are especially welcome. You will be invited to label and help to display your object, and of course have a photograph taken with it in pride of place in the gallery.
Smart Gallery (Social Museum and Art Gallery) is the brain child of Helen Peyton and is a unique collection of works curated by the public. If you live or work in Gipton, now or in the past, this is your chance to influence what exhibits are on show.
Visitors and exhibitors are encouraged to stay as long as they want to share their stories with Jane and Helen and the volunteers or to work alongside artist in residence Helen Peyton to make their own artworks inspired by the displays – perhaps it will be a drawing, or a print. And if you don’t want to take home your newly created work, then into the display it goes!
