THE Director of the Museum of Contemporary Rubbish will give a talk at a Bradford photographic gallery next week.

Impressions Gallery in City Park will welcome Alice Bradshaw on September 19, when she will give a talk on the crossover between art and waste.

The lunchtime talk, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, links in with the gallery’s Our Plastic Ocean exhibition, which features images of plastic that has washed up on shores across the world.
