A public space in the making.

A first get together

We announced a meeting for individuals who wanted to find out more about Colchester Inn. Some people came because they had been to our artist talk, others because they are following firstsite's programme and want to get involved, others because their friend had spoken about it.

Very different backgrounds and stories came together, but some issues seemed to be in common: design, making things, furniture, curiosity, getting involved in new ideas. Glynis talked about how she is using cake as a bonding element in her work with communities: Which cake do you want for the next meeting?
