You can't walk for two minutes in any city centre without seeing an empty shop. East Street Arts is an amazing organisation based in Leeds that supports artists up and down the country in developing ideas and projects in these forgotten spaces and guess what, they have found the perfect place in little old Derby.

So, I jumped right on board and you can now find me at 2, The Spot, right in the heart of Derby city centre. I will be using the space to develop my own creative ideas and projects, the space will see participatory workshops, installation process, exhibitions, film nights and much more.

Chai and the City

Very productive morning down at Artcore. Collating research taken from the #LocalStudiesLibrary last week, in order to make a collaborative creative booklet in response the Chai and the City project. Today we focused on the first ever Teas-made, invented by Samuel Rowbottom in 1892.
