Renew Docklands

Ok, some pretty exciting news here! 😀 This one has been in the works for a while…

My friend James Wright has asked me to be involved in an amazing new community project, Renew Docklands Community Arts!

We’ve been given a brand-new, disused food-court to use as we see fit … and we’re turning it into a community media-arts space!

It’s an absolutely amazing space as you can see in the images below… and what an amazing opportunity.

The story of Docklands has been a difficult one to say the least, with countless shops and businesses having closed doors for years, and entire retail areas being impossible to lease. That’s where Renew Docklands comes in. Artists and small business owners are able to apply for the use of the space rent-free, on a month-by-month basis.

The hope is that new cultural activity will re-inject interest in the area, inpsiring more and more business into the area.

It’s been tried before and it works! – you can read all about Renew here:

The next big step for us is to prepare the space for launch, so we’ve started a Pozible campaign to help with the process!

This has been a real goal of mine for years, I’m totally stoked to see something beginning to happen 😀
