A project with children from local schools

The Outsider was a project led by artist and researcher Rachel Emily Taylor at the Brontë Parsonage Museum in 2017, working with children at local schools in Keighley to explore ideas of a ‘contemporary Heathcliff’. Taylor recorded the children reading poetry about being in the landscape, which has been shaped into an audio installation of ‘clock chimes’. The chimes are reminiscent of Lockwood’s four hour journey between Wuthering Heights and the Grange, the routine of the contemporary classroom, the strictness of Heathcliff’s treatment, and how the children felt out on the moors.

Free with admission to the Museum.
