The installation Panorama Diorama is based on the Victorian era portraiture of the same name. Large scale landscapes have been painted onto canvas, with accompanying props. Individuals and groups can choose their own paradise setting from the selection to be photographed with. The installation is housed in a gazebo and is currently touring events in Bristol and beyond. scroll down to see what happened at St Pauls Learning and Family Centre Winter Warmer, The Celebrating Age Festival, M Shed, a street party in Greenbank and St Pauls Picnic.

ArThur’s Panorama Diorama visited M Shed – the museum showcasing life in Bristol. Like much of summer 2012 in England it was a very wet day, hence M-Shed was very busy. The children were particularly interested in our collection of props
The end of the day, Ben organises the penguins, while Louisa imagines she’s having a nice cup of tea.
After the wettest summer for 100 years a few streets in Greenbank, in the east of Bristol held a street party on a sunny September afternoon. ArThur’s Panorama Diorama joined the residents, some of whom had their photographs taken when they weren’t painting their wheelie bins, throwing water bombs, partaking in silly races, eating ice cream, and generally having a good time.
