Description

THE DNA OF PLACE: Creative And Collective Place-Making with Elaine Speight
Part of a series of walk & talks linked to the exhibition Invisible Narratives showing at Newlyn Art Gallery

Elaine Speight, Curator and Research Fellow ‘In Certain Places’, at the University of Central Lancashire will explore how art and artists can contribute to the development of a place by working with its existing characteristics and revealing hidden assets. Key throughout the place-making process is the involvement of diverse groups of people who bring a range of knowledge, experience and expertise.

Since 2005, Elaine Speight and Professor Charles Quick have led the research project In Certain Places, a programme of artistic and architectural interventions and events. Based in the City of Preston, the project examines how artists can contribute to the form and functions of a place. By exploring new approaches to art, culture and urban development, the programme has generated new understandings of the urban environment, enabled new ideas to be tested in the city’s public spaces, and formed collaborations between artists, institutions, communities and businesses, leading Preston’s former Chief Executive to describe it as ‘part of the city’s DNA’.
