Empty Shops Network in Carlisle & Penrith

As part of the forthcoming #Town2Town empty shops project organised for Carlisle & Penrith, artist group Arcade have invited the Empty Shops Network Tour to join them – and to base themselves in empty premises at 17 Lowther Street,  Carlisle for a week long stay focusing on empty shops and their re-use.

The week in Carlisle will be one of a number of visits the Empty Shops Network are making to towns across the UK. The tour has already visited Brixton (pictured). Future dates include Shoreham by Sea (8th-13th March) and Coventry (22nd-27th March). Artists from the network and local guests will spend a week working with visitors; artists, business and town centre managers and community alike to create a one-day local history exhibition, finding stories in the places they visit.

The week will be packed full of practical sessions, networking meetings and chances to explore technology - so that people visiting will see how quickly an empty shop project can come together and showing the potential of empty shops and meanwhile projects in regeneration. Meetings and workshops can be pre-arranged beforehand through dan@artistsandmakers.com.

The Empty Shops Network artists and colleagues will be based in Carlisle at 17 Lowther Street from Monday 15th March - Saturday 20th 2010 from 10am – 5.30 pm with some outreach work hoped for Penrith also. 

The Empty Shops Network is an initiative set up by the Revolutionary Arts Group. The tour has been funded by the Meanwhile Project, a government funded community improvement company, and is supported by a-n.co.uk.
