Activity in Accrington…..
Examples of other arts and heritage partnerships throughout the UK:
Just a quick post to say that moving on from The Open Shop Project, all the venues involved will be doing more innovative and exciting projects in partnership with artists. The first of these projects is just about to begin with Rossendale Museum where we have artists working with the New Light on Old Bones research project. Kaspar Wimberley and Susanne Kudielka, the artists that delivered The Open Shop Project in Rossendale, have been commissioned again after an open call for artists to work on this project. For more info read the project blog where the artists will be posting http://newlightmanchester.wordpress.com/
It’s all happening on Accrington market. This weekend saw people creating furniture for the Haworth Art Gallery from images of what it looked like as a family home.

Lucy is finishing in Blackburn this week after a very succesful four weeks in Blackburn. She has had around a 100 book recommendations, numerous prints, many conversations and delivered a number of book binding workshops. She will now go away and create an archive of the information she has collected…
I’ve returned from leave to find the Accrington Open Shop Project well underway with exciting new developments. From this Friday there will be dress on display in the market that is a replica of one the Anne Haworth wore when in mourning.
Sarah will also be using the printing blocks from the Haworth’s collection in the market.
