Twelve Uses for Twelve Empty Streets

An opportunity to reflect on the ways communities might engage with spaces as they are now. The area we are in is between place, all of the street names have been removed and the area has been greened.

In the first landscape picture are two young people … What are you doing?? Their ideas ranged from better slides to a forrest.. They want a forrest!

We looked at the space, read some others ideas of spaces and use, regeneration and function, played Curbsy and sounded out some ideas. I think this is a great starting point for finding out more from more of the community.
