This was a six-month artist project working creatively with diverse members of the Blackpool community including: Hoteliers, donkey proprietors, the police, people in recovery along with those in entertainment and food service. The aim of the project was to creatively capture memories and then respond by making my own artwork that would become an educational resource.
Blackpool Artist in Residence – Workshops
Kate produced an intricate and fascinating take on Blackpool’s history, using found objects and memories for the Blackpool Artist in Residence project. The artwork was a great catalyst for conversations for young people about Blackpool’s past including the donkeys, hotels and Pleasure Beach. The educational pack Kate produced proved a big hit with schools.
