Good to see so many people at the Lace2Place demo today at Nottingham Contemporary
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.
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.
The participant workshop on Saturday 1st December at Nottingham Contemporary was a great success. Lots of memories and stories related to the Lace Market area.
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.
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.
