The latest show at ...blip – a space for art, Regenerei8ht is an evolving window-based installation that has so far featured two Saturday performances exploring the potential uses for empty spaces in Grimsby town centre.
The latest installation features a slideshow of digitally drawn and altered local buildings alongside a selection of quotes from The Grimsby Town Deal and local news reports about the ongoing development of regeneration planned for the town over the next few years.
‘Further down the high street there is another empty shop with the words ‘NO HOPE’ sprayed over the whitewashed frontage. We ask ‘What would you prefer to see in empty spaces in your town centre?’
Blip’s Marc Renshaw said ‘For the latest incarnation of the year-long exhibition (space dependent) I’ll be highlighting short extracts from the Grimsby Town Deal as a starting point to educate myself about the proposed process of Grimsby regeneration, and hopefully through this process, share key information with those who look in the window so they can get more informed and involved in shaping their future town.‘
I’m looking forward to the public consultations and the potential for hope. I’d like locals to really have their say on how the potential of regeneration could benefit everyone.
For ‘Regenerei8ht,’ we have an open brief. What is regeneration? What role can art play?
