Project insights

The Festival 


As part of the festival vacant and occupied store fronts transformed into galleries and pop-up performance spaces for a month-long showcase, energising the retail experience and showcasing the best of local young talent.




Website


The public was be able to participate in the festival and each of its sites by conencting  to content via  QR codes that transported them to a purpoesly built festival website.


The  interactive map featured on the website acted as a series of trails driving the public to discover more about what is on offer, transforming the high street and engaging with local businesses and makers.


The website also offered shoppers with an opportunity to redeem voucher codes and offers that were produced in collaboration with the shops & spaces involved, creating a map of businesses that are providing both artistic engagement and exciting opportunities to shop.
