PAST PROJECTS

The Mount Pavilion

THE MOUNT PAVILION

Throughout 2014 and 2015 the iconic Mount Pavilion played host to an amazing array of artist residencies and family workshops. From artists using the space to develop work for Fleetwood’s Spareparts Festival to family workshops in the school holidays, the much loved space provided inspiration.

ROSSALL BEACH NEIGHBOURHOOD COMMISSION

Neighbourhood commissions give communities the chance to work alongside LeftCoast to develop a project and to work with an artist directly in their community spaces. In 2015 the Rossall Beach group worked with artists Invisible Flock.

Project Haweside

During the summer holidays, Left Coast commissioned international recording artist Danny Fahey to host a series of workshops based in a shipping container at Crossland Rd Park Blackpool.

Squash Nutrition

HOMESTEAD ON THE GRANGE

Back in 2014 Squash Nutrition delivered Homestead on the Grange, a programme of activity throughout the summer on Grange Park. Inspired by urban farms and sustainable living, Squash worked with the residents of Grange Park to create a pop up food shop and kitchen.
