10 – 19 November 2004
10 September 2001... is an attempt to get
a snapshot of the activities and life of the residents of an English district
on a single day, 10 September 2001; the day before the tragedy of 11 September
2001 in the USA. Many people will remember what they were doing when they
heard the news of the 11th, but what is remembered of the day before this
event which has influenced so many lives in the intervening years? What
was going on during an ordinary day one hour from London, in a landscape
marked with the history of England.
10 September 2001... takes a slice
of life from births to meetings to events. Is it possible to measure the
impact of 11 September 2001 by looking at the everyday events of the day

Neville Gabie's 10 September 2001... an archive within an archive
raises questions about what things will be important for the librarians/archivists
to collect. Join the artist Neville Gabie, Martin Andrews the Deputy Director
of the Centre
for Ephemera Studies at Reading University and
Elizabeth Hughes, East Sussex County Archivist to an insight into why
we might want to keep the seemingly insignificant, like a shop price list,
a theatre handbill or your own pocket diary.
