DSW Member collects stories to rEvive town centre

DSW member Chrissie has been busy in Ilkeston as part of the Erewash rEvive Art project, working to regenerate the High Street by putting arts projects in empty shops in Ilkeston, After collecting life stories from visitors to the project's Bath Street store, Chrissie has worked with artist Julie Genner, to create a window display from the life stories donated by participants.

"Each story  box is unique, covered with random extracts of real, local life stories , arranged to replicate the way our stories link us together, overlapping – touching – weaving through – cutting across and underpinning. The ‘people’ are all unique too, if you look closely enough you’ll see each one is smothered in stories!"
