Wasteland Twinning Nottingham needs you!

Wasteland Twinning Nottingham needs volunteers to realise a photographic work this Saturday. 

On Saturday 27th April, Wasteland Twinning Nottingham is producing an ambitious photographic work on ‘The Island’ wasteland, between Sneinton and Nottingham city centre. The work is a recreation of an artist’s impression of the unrealised Hopkin’s masterplan (above), which would have seen the space developed with hotels, restaurants, flats and offices. We’re going to ask people to stand on the wasteland in the same positions as those on the image, and this scene will then be photographed. The finished work will be exhibited at One Thoresby Street in the autumn. We will also talk to people about their hopes for the future of the Island; and ask people if they have any memories of experiences of the space.

If you would like to be involved, please meet outside the BBC offices on London Road at 10.30am. We’re providing lunch from the Secret Kitchen – a lovely community cafe in Sneinton. If you have any queries please email nottingham@wasteland-twinning.net

The project is funded by the European Culture Foundation.
