See you this Saturday

See you this Saturday, 16th February, between 11-3pm at The Studio, Nottingham Contemporary where you’ll experience the Lace Market as never before in our immersive cube.

Lace/2/Place – Experience it Yourself

Would you like to go back in time and revisit the Lace Market as it was in its heyday? Or experience the Ad Lib, Garage and Sandpiper clubs, as they were in the 80s and 90s? Then you can do just that by coming along to The Studio, Nottingham Contemporary on Saturday 16th February, 11-3pm where you’ll be able to experience the Lace2Place immersive cube. Lace2Place is a heritage project with a difference – all the content has been created by the good people of Nottingham, with a little help from the School of English, University of Nottingham, and Mission Room.



Material Comes Together

A good meeting with Mission Room today in which which previewed some of the content that participants have written about the Lace Market. This included creative writing and  potted histories. Topics ranged from the lost Garner’s Hill Park to the equally lost Ad Lib Club on St Mary’s Gate.

Participants Call – Lace2Place

There’s still room for one or two more participants in our immersive heritage project – if you’re interested please drop me an email/social media reply.

The event will take place on Saturday 1st December at Nottingham Contemporary. We start at 10am with a finish time of around 3pm. We start the morning with an historical tour of the Lace Market area (about 1 hr in length) before getting down to thinking about our own personal/creative responses to the area.


Final Preparations

A good meeting with Mission Room on Tuesday. They’ll be capturing immersive images  of the entire Lace Market area ready for the VR Sprint on the 1st December. We’re also sourcing historical photographs of the Lace Market that will then be layered onto the immersive template.


Project Meeting

Good meeting with MissionRoom to discuss the VR template for the project. We’re looking for photos, film and objects from the Lace Market that we can integrate into the experience. For images and film we’ll need to know their exact location within the Lace Market so that they can be accurately positioned in the VR template.
