Unplanned Space

This production explored ideas around the regeneration of the urban landscape: planning, architecture and how young people exist and interact with that environment at moments of significant change.

On the edge of a large estate in a sprawling urban landscape lies in a small pocket of space, unused and unplanned…a blank canvas waiting for a transformation. However, a small group of local people, young & old use this space – to play or contemplate in, to work or just to escape to. Now it is all to change!

The land is to be developed as part of the wider regeneration plans for this estate and surrounding areas. Change, as we all know, is frightening. And now, the community must turn their attention to the reality of how that evolution will affect their lives.
