Spaces

Every empty, underused and misused space will be populated with activity based around Arte et Labore - skills, creativity and hard work.

Creative Spaces

Blackburn town centre has a number of creative spaces, venues and outdoor public spaces in which we will use as part of our programming.

We will  also use empty, underused and misused spaces… filling every nook and cranny with creative activity!

Blackburn’s cultural spaces include Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery, Blackburn is Open pop up art centre, King Georges Hall, the Library, the Cathedral, outdoor spaces and a future cultural centre for making.

Every empty, underused and misused space will be populated with activity based around Arte et Labore – skills, creativity and hard work.

Spaces will be filled with creative cooks, dressmakers, furniture makers, photographers, bakers, printers, jewellers and makers of all persuasions who have a passion for creativity, industriousness and hard work.
