Working within the UK’s roadmap dates for recovery, Touchstones Rochdale responds with optimism to a ‘lost year’ spent in the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic with exhibitions that respond to this tumultuous period, but also offer welcome escapism.

Following a call-out for ideas from the Rochdale community, What’s Changed? provides an early snapshot of what, if anything, a global pandemic has altered in people’s attitudes, aspirations and ambitions. The responses will be interpreted alongside relative items from Rochdale’s social history and visual arts collections.

Ensuring that the shock of the now is framed with perspectives from the past, Touchstones delves into Rochdale’s nationally significant social history archives to set recent memories, gathered via a public callout, alongside evidence of changing lifestyles, trends and collective, cultural shocks of years gone by.
