May 2017: Create Community Centre, Macclesfield

In March 2017 Hannah Buckley ( ) and I received a research project commission from the Barnaby Arts Festival, Macclesfield. The project involved working with Macclesfield locals to think about how to bring attention to the movement of every day actions and activities. We worked with members of the Macclesfield chess group, a local gardener in her allotment and two silk screen artists from the Print Shop. In our research we considered the movement of these people's activities but also what they gained from doing them.

This project culminated in a sharing of our findings which involved conversations about the research process, responses to some of the footage that was filmed and ideas of how the work could be developed in the future.
