Preston Remembers

Preston Remembers was a creative research project, undertaken by Jenny Steele and Laurence Payot, which examined how Preston’s Market Square is used and how Prestonians relate to the Cenotaph within it. The artists each undertook a series of activities which traced people’s movements, looked for visual patterns in chaotic and constant flows, photographed, categorised and encouraged people to re-imagine the Cenotaph. Their research informed Preston City Council’s Preston Remembers project, which was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and involved the renovation and remodelling of the Cenotaph in the run up to the centenary of the First World War in 2014.
