Gap Fillers

After the quake in NZ a lot of buildings had to be pulled down and a project sprung up to fill the gaps left behind, Unique art and community spaces.

How can we use people, and local assets to make Wolverhampton a better place?

This is an idea I picked up from New Zealand in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake but I think it can be easily used in Wolverhampton.

After the quake in NZ a lot of buildings had to be pulled down and a project sprung up to fill the gaps left behind, Unique art and community spaces.

There have been things like cycle powered cinemas, giant monopoly boards, community games, live music and book exchanges.

We could bring people and organisations into the city to look at using our empty shops in a similar way. It could be sporadic with different things and different times or my favourite a kind of festival of empty spaces with a period of time with all empty units full of unique and different interactive art projects, displays and "events"
