About the Event

How can we use the world of online shopping to help us reconnect with our local shopfronts? Using a series of creative prompts from commissioned artists exhibiting in the high streets of Bournemouth, Darlington, Hereford, and Southend, a multidisciplinary team from the project Towns and the Cultural Economies of Recovery will rummage through our metaphorical shopping baskets, tell us what other people have been buying, and help us write a creative wish list for the future of our towns.

This family friendly workshop will lead participants through a series of creative tasks and collaborations to create and curate their own shop-front exhibition.

This event is part of the Being Human Festival, the UK's only national festival of the humanities, taking place 11-20 Nov 2021. For further information please see www.beinghumanfestival.org
