AboutSouth Square Wants Your Ideas for What Life Could be like in 50 Years.
South Square Centre in Thornton is currently in the process of a Community Asset Transfer of the building. This is an exciting moment for the centre that will shape its future, putting it in the hands of the community for the next 50 years.
To celebrate this milestone, we are working with artist and University of Bradford’s Producer Music and Visual Arts, Andy Abbott, to produce a short video for the South Square Centre website and Facebook page. The video will be made using 360/VR technology and will reflect the communities’ ideas, hopes and desires for what South Square, Thornton and Bradford could be like over the next 50 years.
South Square’s programme manager, Alice Withers has been working with students of Beckfoot Thornton secondary school to generate content for the video through activities and workshops. A selection of the artistic outcomes from these sessions will be exhibited at South Square Gallery throughout February. The exhibition will also be an opportunity for visitors to submit their own ideas to be included in the final video.
In 50 Years opens February 02 and runs till Sunday 25 February 2018.
