Having met with Mike Blow earlier today we are a lot clearer on the goal of the assignment.
After discussing a few ideas, we focussed on how businesses and other facilities are shutting down creating empty buildings and even whole streets such as Western Approach and the Palace Theatre on Union Street.
We have been trying to think of ways to bring people back into the area and regenerate the social scene as using the shop fronts for traditional businesses is obviously no longer viable. One idea we have contemplated is creating a venue similar to @bristol using the whole unused frontage of Western Approach in the hope that it will bring something different and vibrant into a dated and derelict area of the city.
That’s all for now, keep checking back for further updates.
