Trading Secrets

We had a request from Ana Ospina - an artist who specialises in socially engaged practice and is currently working for Beam in Wakefield as part of the creative programme for the new Trinity Walk development,. She is working on a participative project to involve the local community and her work will form part of a workshop event on the 27th of September and a launch event in November. It will also feed into some permanent features. She has chosen to base her work on a modern reinterpretation of the Wakefield Mystery Cycle. The first stage of the project was to identify important groups or 'guilds' in Wakefield and find out some of their trade secrets. She came across our website during her internet based research and requested a visit. As a result she visited the Green Lane site on Saturday afternoon and spoke to several plotters, took photographs and filmed.
For anyone interested the first part of the project on 27 September from 10:00 - 15:00 will be held at the Elizabethan Gallery which is opposite the new market hall in Wakefield.
