Temporary Places

Temporary Places- art and community project in New Lodge and Skegoneill/ Glandore Interface.
A collaboration between New Lodge Arts, PS² and Skegoneill & Glandore Common Purpose.
Participating artists: Duncan Ross, Paddy Bloomer, Yvonne Kennan, Philip Hession, Joanna Hopkins, Laura O'Connor, Charlotte Bosanquet, Mairead Dunne. April - August 2013.

Organised by New Lodge Arts, PS² and Skegoneill & Glandore Common Purpose, ‘Temporary Places’ is an art and community project aimed at children, young people, their families and the wider community.
It will use temporary spaces in each area; an empty shop in New Lodge and a temporary office container in Glandore Avenue. Both sites are at interfaces with little cultural infrastructure and will be used as surprising, flexible, neutral and open place for art programmes.
Facilitated by artists, the spaces will be used for research, meetings, workshops, a range of shared space activities and celebrations for and with the neighbourhood. As small and colourful landmarks, these temporary spaces serve as artist hub, community centre and basis for explorations and interventions within the area. The programme and activities of ‘Temporary Places’ should incorporate interests, desires and existing cultural practices of the communities, i.e. crafts, games, sports, computing… Using different degrees of participation, these interests should be explored, broadened and translated into clear projects, with a strong focus on creativity, development of skills, team working and shared ownership.
