The Keepers of the Light

Keepers of the Light centres on the iconic lighthouse at Portland Bill and the location of its original production –
Chance Glass Works in Smethwick.

Keepers of the Light centres on findings and observations around the iconic lighthouse at Portland Bill in Southern England and the location of its original production – Chance Glass Works in Smethwick. Using text, audio recordings, photographic and film fragments, Brendan Jackson and Geoff Broadway are collaborating on a book and short film. The works will explore, celebrate and share the connective history and significance of these places, engaging with narratives and themes of place and identity.
