We've recently been appointed by Regather to carry out an initial feasibility strategy for a food hub in Sheffield and we've also installed the first of the concrete structures for Danni Kerr's University of Sheffield based PhD research at Bloc Projects now, with the next due on a small island over the coming weeks.
Our TINGAS project (in collaboration with Sheffield City Council), continues, setting up sustainable community facility and workspace in the former infants school in Tinsley. We have secured over £14,000 in grant funding for the initiaves in the building over the last year (see project site here ) and worked with students from the School of Architecture at the University of Sheffield on projects to monitor and test pollution reduction strategies using green walls and aglae this autumn.
Finally, we recently secured Arts Council Funding for our ds2 project, working with artists Sally Labern and Sally Barker as well as two Sheffield graduates. The ds2 is an agile kit of parts designed to be assembed in a number of configurations by artists/users and to move between different groups. Our first workshops are taking place in Tinsley.
