This July public works are roaming the Kings Cross area on a converted milk float to collect tips and tricks on how to do your own regeneration - besides living in one of the biggest and ambitious inner city regeneration areas in Europe.
All advise is being collected in the form of a posters which are produced and displayed on site wherever the float is parked on the day. You can also view them on line at www.diyregeneration.net
On the 11th of July DIY REGENERATION will take part in the Somer's Town Festival. Join us for a ride, a chat and a song together with the Musical Flying Squad. Click here for full programme of the day.
DIY REGENERATION is part of Junction, a series of artist's projects for King's Cross, commissioned by Camden Arts Centre and supported by Bloomberg and the Wellcome Trust.
The "Folk Float" (not just any old milk float) has been brought down from Egremont in Cumbria, where it was previously commissioned for Creative Egremont, a public art programme by Grizedale Arts.
public works has been working with staff from the Sports Technology Institute at Loughborough University and a group of sport enthusiastic teenagers from the near-by village of Barrow upon Soar to develop a new sports product.
"a ball is a ball is a ball" is the result of a series of joint workshops and prototyping which were centred around different ball games and the idea of a "multisport" - which can be played spontaneously with any kind of ball.
We will open an International Village Shop for the day, and be open between 12.00 and 17.00 in front of the School of Art and Design at Loughborough University.
The project had been commissioned by Radar for their "Group Process" series.
