transient space 5

Empty Shops network conference, Colchester; visiting Slack Space.
A little explanation: there are an increasing number of initiatives to occupy our empty high street premises with projects and activity instead of watching them decay. The benefits are obvious, regeneration is more likely to happen if an area doesn't look totally derelict. These “meantime” projects are run on a shoestring but good things come of them.

The salmon ones went early

it's a crossing but can you dance to it?

geodesic domes haven't gone out of fashion

exhibition to celebrate 30years of Wivenhoe May Fair; made me laugh, moved to the area around 1983; I did try to see if I recognised anyone in the photos; I recognised the general activity; funny how the hippy ethic has clung on

Slack Space, anything but slack

making some noise

creative plumbing

made some noise

beautiful features of old Co-op building

has its own dome (not geodesic)

great views over the town, even in the rain

Great shots! And here's hoping that the hippy ethic never dies.
