Just join myself... I presently fill an empty shopping unit in Holmfirth but my presence has increased the footfall and a new developer is taking my unit.
I have a gallery there 'til the 1st of October but will then be looking for new spaces. Hope it goes well for you
(I can't help but wonder if you are the same Nikki Carr I went to school with?) That aside, I have just moved back to Birmingham and I am looking for somewhere to use as a temp exhibition/studio space... I too am keen to get hold of the empty shops handbook...
best wishes for your new job,
Are you still interested in meanwhile activity in Birmingham? Meanwhile Space are just about to start looking at spaces in the city and have created a group so we can start to link people doing projects already or wanting to get them going. If you are interested please join the group and let us know what you are up to.
