Market Town 2015


Radar, LU Art's contemporary arts programme, in conjunction with Charnwood Arts, has invited architects, artists and designers to develop projects that re-imagine the future of Loughborough's town centre.

Alongside Market Town commissions, Radar is running a programme of regular workshops and seminars offering everyone the opportunity to get involved.

To deliver the Market Town project, Radar and LU Arts are working closely with their two delivery partners, Charnwood Arts and Love Loughborough to develop a series of projects that will act as a form of action research. Through these projects, the Market Town project will investigate the potential of artists, architects, designers and other creative professionals to develop work that re-imagines the town as a destination for "socialising, culture, health, well-being, creativity and learning.." - (The Portas Review, 2011), while seeking new ways to rethink and activate local economies.

The Market Town project will involve both discussion and action and will use Loughborough as a case study to examine how we can redefine the role of the town centre to help ensure its long term future.

Come along to the Market Town Corner in Loughborough's Carillon Court (just off the Market Place) to find out more, watch films and see exhibitions and showcases.

Places at all events can be booked at unless otherwise stated.
