Project Description

A sense of community and diversity is a big thing [about the area] and what community can mean. People’s passion is another thing, and a set of values that you don’t often see on the surface of an area but they seem to be quite embedded in the place. With the threat of redevelopment and these things potentially disappearing then you start to wonder what the place might become. – James Cronin, NME October 12 2015.
