After the success of MAS workshop/ exhibition and exchange, a new project has slowly been coming together. MAS was a great pop-up project that was able to utilise a community space for a fun and creative event but it was short and relatively small.
Sooo a new project has been developed out of MAS and this time it’s much bigger, theres more stuff going on for more people and it will last longer. It’s just much bigger, better and mega exciting!!
The Living Room will evolve from a programme of workshops and conversations with the community and culminate in the recreation of a typical homely and usable living room space within the gallery. The objective of the project is to explore changing spaces, values and interactions for communities that are going though transition in relation to regeneration, recession and globalisation, whilst also exploring the opportunities and value and of the arts in this respect. To engage with wide audiences, the Living Room will involve both community groups and a wider public to fill the gallery space with totemic objects representing significant values.
The same as MAS, The Living Room has been lucky enough to be granted support from Think Big. THANKS to YOU THINK BIG!!
So there are a few more plans and things to be sorted but please keep an eye out for opportunities and events. I’m hoping there will be lots of time and space to get a great public programme organised and it would be fantastic to have lots of people involved with this.
Watch this space!
