Artists from the Empty Shops Network are currently touring the UK with a project which helps artists understand the challenges and opportunities of working in empty shops. Experienced empty shop artists will create an exhibition in one week, exploring local place and distinctiveness in a variety of media.
Throughout the week, the Empty Shops Network's founder, author of the Empty Shops Workbook and well-known speaker (Central St Martins, Chain Reaction, AIR Time, Arts Council England 'Art in empty shops', RIBA, Space Makers) Dan Thompson will be available to talk to artists about how to use empty shops successfully, with friendly, informal but practical meetings to discuss projects available free of charge.
And open events throughout the week will help artists network, with a coffee morning from 10am-12 noon each Wednesday and a workshop on using online publishing tool bookleteer.com each Friday.
The Empty Shops Network tour is at 1a New Street, Shoreham by Sea, Sussex (8-13 March), 17 Lowther Street, Carlisle (15-20 March) and in City Arcade, Coventry (22-27 March).
