Anna Francis: Talking City Workshop 16th & 23rd October

New Generation Space would like to invite you to attend two events lead by artist Anna Francis. As part of the ongoing SHOP project in Stoke town centre Anna is undertaking a project over a period of two weeks, these two New Generation Space events will reflect the exploratory work she will be doing as part of this project.

Talking City

Event 1: Saturday, 16th October:

1 – 2.30pm Anna Francis: Walking in the City.

3pm – 4.00pm The first episode of Talking City Live.

Anna will give a talk about her practice to date which explores the impact of art and culture on regeneration. Anna will discuss the varying activities that she finds herself undertaking in order to operate as an artist in the City.

Event 2: Saturday 23rd October:

1 – 2pm Talking City On Location in Stoke Town Tour

2 – 5pm Regenerating Stoke Town with Anna Francis

Anna will lead a tour of Stoke Town, which will attempt to point out the parts of the town that are working very well, as well as picking up on the areas which require the most interventions. This is a session for artists, encouraging new ways of looking and seeing. The afternoon will culminate in a re-visioning activity – to explore how artists could be involved in the regeneration process underway in the town.
