In 42 New Briggate Leeds LS1 6NU 1st March — 5th April Closing event — 6-8pm Thursday 1st April 2010 Refreshments will be provided — ALL ARE WELCOME! The gallery will then be open to the public 11am — 7pm Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th March. Excitingly artists Laura Robinson and Liz Stirling will be artists-in-residence in 42 New Briggate, a shop unit next to The Grand Theatre. The month of March will be used to make, collate and present research around Den Making. About the Den Project The Den Project initiates the construction of spaces of creativity inviting people to participate and contribute to the design and making of temporary environments, as a means of communicating that does not depend on one common spoken language. It celebrates the potential of temporary structures, a d.i.y aesthetic, assemblage and disassemblage, and the reusing of materials. As such the constructions become a focus of discussion that draws on such experiences as individual childhood memories, home-made construction methods, the necessity of shelter physically and psychologically, creativity as a means of exchange and communication that somewhere between all these connects what we can do universally. 42 New Briggate's window space will be used to screen films from the project, and display documentation of the artists explorations in the gallery.
