WHAT COULD WORK SHOP
A community youth workshop that myself and Ramona Bigwood conceptualised during lockdown 2020. It focuses on working with young people to reimagine how empty shop fronts could be filled in their town's high streets. A simple activity that prompts larger thinking about what is important to a town's community.
We recently got commissioned to hold the workshop as part of Culture Weston's project The Memory Bank. We were part of the FUTURE section, we held an online workshop asking the participants about the future of Weston-super-mare. Participants were sent a pack with a 'Future Vision' sheet, some patterned paper and other materials, and nets to create their shop fronts.
