Installations

Make/Shift Spaces works with a whole range of artists, creatives, community and special interest groups to fill spaces with vibrant installations and activity. We also use some of the spaces to tell stories about our community, with window displays and images.

The duration for each installation will vary - some may be weeks, others may be there for months. It depends on what the project is, as well as how long the space is available.

Some projects can be enjoyed as you stroll along the streets, like 'The Bird Butcher Shop of Trafalgar Street', and Sally Burton's 'White Gold'; and others may be more interactive, like CAN's information hub for raising awareness around housing solutions, and the solo play, The Bicycle & the Butcher's Daughter.

The best thing to do is start looking through the website!
