Encounter: Creative Spaces, Coworking & Innovation

28th February 2011 – Event Announcement!

Tuttle101 is proud to announce an event that connects many dots across a three-year history of Community101 discussions, activities and creative collaborations – to present an exciting vision towards the future of Kent’s Creative Economy. We are working in partnership with NKLAAP (North Kent Local Authority Arts Partnership) to present a day of dialogue and exchange about using empty shops and meanwhile spaces in the region.

This event is run by NKLAAP as part of Encounter, a new programme of art in public spaces happening in North Kent in 2011 (www.nklaap.com/encounter.html) and includes a session led by Dan Thompson of the Empty Shops Network.

Supporting details:
Encounter is an exciting arts project happening in your town centre in 2011. It will transform 6 urban sites in Medway and the boroughs of Gravesham and Swale through a range of temporary, site-specific installations, performances or events developed in partnership with local community groups. The encounters will take place in familiar spaces in the heart of the community – empty shops, vacant buildings, businesses, high streets and public squares – and will be linked by a programme of talks and discussions, as well as documentation through film, photography and writing on the Encounter website. More information can be found in the Commissions Briefing Document.
The Empty Shops Network helps hundreds of projects across the country talk to each other, share ideas and access practical resources. Looking at town centres across the country its clear things are changing, and the most obvious sign is that about 14% of shops are empty. Empty shops are being used right now to test new ideas for town centres and to add variety to the mix – the Empty Shops Network supports these.
Tuttle101 isn’t for everyone but it is for anyone. A loose collection of people finding a way of working better together (both offline and on). Focused on Inspiration, Collaboration and Learning Through Doing.
