Author: Alan Gerrard

I am the Co-Director of Theartbay Gallery and Fine Art Publishing—a community-focused exhibition space functioning in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent, UK. A trustee on today’s Staffordshire-based Lidice Lives organisation, I have co-operated on bilateral projects with friends and colleagues in Lidice and the wider Czechia for 12 years in the name of cultural awareness and understanding. I began working in the pottery industry in the 1980s, before changing vocation in 1990. I am fully experienced and conversant in the fields of teaching, economics, and governance; and have recently published the book The Path to Lidice, the respective stories of the Lidice Shall Live and Lidice Lives campaigns.
