Culture Shops on Central Drive

Volunteer clean up 1

Culture Shops returns this spring with Blackpool Art’s Service working in partnership with Blackpool Council’s Neighbourhood Services, The Big Local Revoe-lution and CVS, to bring three rounds of artists exhibiting new work at 79-81 Central Drive.

A small army of enthusiastic local volunteers from Revoe Big Local have been working hard to make the spaces ready for the artists to install their artwork next week.

Much of the artwork is a result of workshops that have taken place in the Revoe community, or as a result of the artists’ interactions within members of the community. All artists involved were selected by a panel made up from community representatives who carefully selected a range of artforms that they best thought would add interest to the empty shop windows on Central Drive.

The Big Local Revoe-lution group will also be turning 79 Central Drive into a Big Local Community Hub which will be manned by local volunteers. More information to follow soon.

Round 1 artists are: Tom Ireland, Linzi Cason and Brendan Bunting. You will be able to see their work on display from Wednesday 17 April for four weeks at 77-81 Central Drive.

Round 2 artists are: Aunty Social, Boz Phillips and Lisa Wigham whose work will be on display from Saturday 18 May – Sun 16 June.

Round 3 artists are: Laura Brennan, Alchemy (Gold Arts Award) and The Langdale Photography Group. Their work will be on display from Thursday 20th June – Wed 17th July.

More information about the artists who will be displaying their work will follow over the forthcoming weeks.
