Watch This Space was a unique programme of arts events created for unusual spaces. Combining multi media installation, exhibition and performance, each project unlocked the doors to areas of historic buildings not often visited by the public. The Watch This Space team consisted of 6 talented artists who collaborated to create intimate artistic experiences which question our relationship to heritage.
In 2004 WTS visited Belper Mill basement. Focussing on the industrial giants and mill workers that helped shape the town, the performance told the story of the rise and fall of one of Britain’s most influential industrial developments.
Using interviews with local residents, video footage captured around the town, dynamic lighting and original soundtrack WTS Belper offered a contemporary yet intimate insight into the mill’s past.
WTS Belper tours were a huge success with locals and visitors to the town and over their 5 day span they attracted 300 people to the mill.
