blink project launch > ‘where the birdcage used to be’

April 12, 2010

blink have created and developed a project with a positive community impact to be set in the city arcade. This is a space that holds the memory of a well known city landmark – ‘the birdcage’. The birdcage left such an impression that the space is still referred to locally as ‘where the birdcage used to be’. 

blink’s premises sit on the old birdcage site and have become known as ‘the gallery next to where the birdcage used to be’..!

blink have been researching the city archives and have also been collating recollections and images from local residents.  This personal data has really enriched the project and we continue to collect more. 

In fact, we would love to receive your or your family’s photos and/or written memories of the birdcage and the city arcade from the last 4 decades – rest assured everything we receive is precious to us…

So far, we have some fascinating stuff and thank you to all who have contributed… All of you will be embedded in the project always…
