Saturday 15th June saw The Mayor of Blackpool, Councillor Eddie Collett, and the Mayoress Mrs Heather Collett officially open the Big Local Revoe-lution Information Hub on Central Drive. The Big Local Community Group have been working closely with Blackpool Arts Service, Neighbourhoods Service and CVS over the past few months to create a welcoming space for members of the community to come and discuss plans for the £1m Big Local Fund to be spent over the next 10 years in the Revoe area.
Saturday’s event was attended by lots of members of the community who came to find out more about Big Local and meet some of the artists involved in recent rounds of Central Drive Culture Shops. Boz and Mr Dee who created ‘Dr Evoes’s Fantasy Pet Shop’ were on hand to chat about their work as was Brendan Bunting who created ‘Little Shoppers’. People could also get involved in an Aunty Social craft workshop and could merrily bang away on the the ‘Kitchen Sink’, a sound installation funded by Arts Council England and created by pStan Batcow and John Morrow.
The Big Local Revoe-lution Hub is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoon and staffed by volunteers from the Revoe Community. Round three of Central Drive Culture Shops will be exhibited from Wednesday 19th June. Round three artists include Laura Brennan, Alchemy Arts Award students and the Langdale Centre Photography Group.
