Appetite are delivering The Newcastle Common, a three year programme in the centre of Newcastle-under-Lyme, which will look at the changing use of the town centre. It will test empty shops as sites of production of culture, rather than consumption, and as useful community spaces.
We want an artist, writer, or maker working in the space. You’ll be joining us as we move in. As we do this, we’d like you to tell the story of what we’re doing in our windows, and sometimes have the door open so passers by can drop in.
You’ll collect stories and record conversations you have with people who pass by or drop in, and you might invite people into the space, too. You might run participatory activities that are part of your practice in the space, you might not. You’ll talk to shopkeepers in neighbouring shops. You’ll help us get a picture of who uses the streets around our shop, and why.
Find out more and apply here.
Deadline: 22 January 2021
