This week we have been measuring up, well, lanes of space.
As many of you know, we have been (literally) working in Theatre Lane, pasting up art posters to ‘lift’ the area. The project is going well, considering the torrents of rain we have been having. Today, when we were doing some maintenance, we came across a very newly dead pigeon. We won’t go into detail, just to say, this is not the first time we’ve encountered such matter on the street.
In one area of Hunter Street mall, there are a number of properties sharing lane way space. Often, these areas, become overlooked and uncared for.
Our newest project is bringing together over three property owners, equating to over 500 per square metres of space.
The areas will need serious cleaning and clearing before artists can work in the area. Today we came across many spiders (including one very huge and angry red back), weeds and a broken couch, rotten with water and whatever else.
Soon the area will be transformed from a black hole into a brighter place, filled with artworks.
Expressions of interest from artists will be called very soon. Preparing photos, measurements and maps at the moment.
