Projects Old & New...
WE ARE PERHAPS BEST KNOWN FOR THE DONCOPOLITAN AN ARTS & CULTURE MAGAZINE CREATED TO PROVE THAT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A 'CULTURAL DESERT'.
The Doncopolitan was purposefully created using high-end design and quality materials to give the South Yorkshire town of Doncaster the kind of respect usually reserved for cities such as London.
We knew that Donny was a town full of talent, but even we were surprised by some of the #DonnyLegends the magazine has helped to bring to light.
THE TELLING WAS OUR FIRST LARGE SCALE ART, MUSIC, PERFROMANCE & STORYTELLING EVENT.
We staged a number of The Telling and The Gifting events at Church View, a former art college in Doncaster. The events were inspired by the Dark Mountain project and featured well known artists such as internationally renowned muralist, Phlegm, and multi award winning musician, Jon Boden.
The Telling blog
ROOTED IS AN ONGOING PROJECT WHICH USES GUERRILLA GARDENING, UPCYCLING, ART, MUSIC AND STORYTELLING TO EXPLORE & SHOWCASE MORE RESILIENT, SELF-RELIANT & SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLES.
The world our children will inherit will be full of technical wonders, but unless we act now they will not know the natural wonders we ourselves enjoyed as children.
WE WERE INVITED TO HELP TRANSFORM A DISUSED ROOM IN DONCASTER'S LEOPARD MUSIC VENUE INTO A SPACE FOR CONTEMPORARY ART. THE VISION THING EXHIBITION WAS THE RESULT.
The Doncopolitan has always been a heavily visual publication with an emphasis on good photography. We decided to showcase some of the magazine's best photographs and best photographers for the launch of Doncaster's newest exhibition space.
LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY IS A BRAND NEW PROJECT WHICH, WE HOPE, WILL ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO CREATE, SHARE AND OWN PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS.
Over the next few months we will run a series of photographic workshops which target people of various skills. At the end of the project we will create a unique new photographic exhibition which wil make it easier for people to own phtographic prints. Watch this space...
