August 2018 to September 2020
Our Big Pictures Ltd in partnership with NE Lincolshire Council and sponsored by Arts Council England has brought a two year contemporary arts programme to ‘Market Central’. A newly created, large centrally located indoor market stall space, on Grimsby’s Top Town Market.
This unique space has become a focal point to an original high quality arts programme. The programme focuses on Visual Arts and Making. In a short time we have aleady welcomed a range of emerging and experienced artists to be part of the programme. Through exhibitions, resident artist appointment with Graham Firth, a busy and rewarding children and young people drop-in sessions and workshops with our newly appointed co-ordinator Wendy. We have supported young talent through the Teenage Market scheme and we have exciting new commisssions to undertake in the coming months for work within the market and new public realm artwork. We have also had our first of a series of Makers Markets which we hope to focus on traditional crafts.
The market and its people are unique! but not unlike other towns that has seen a demise in the high street. The project looks to bring new ways of working within a very public space!
