The Maker-Centric project explores how the act of making can help bring communities together to form and shape a sense of identity and heritage.
Two groups will come together with artists to create objects that reflect and tell the hidden stories of region’s shared heritage. One group will be based in Birmingham in Soho House Museum working with artist Melanie Tomlinson, whilst the other group will be based in Wolverhampton in Hope Community and Gatis Community Space working with artists Laura Onions and Gavin Rogers.
The project is a partnership between Craftspace (Birmingham) and the University of Wolverhampton. It is an AHRC funded programme and builds on the findings of the Co-Producing CARE: Community Asset-Based Research and Enterprise project.
