Park Road Market.

Park Road Market

tenantspin have recently been meeting with Jean Grant from Pool Projects to discuss and document the changes planned for the Mecca Bingo site on Park Road, Dingle. Quite a few of the tenants are residents of the Park Road area (including myself!) and reguarly use the market which takes place on Tuesday mornings on a tarmaced site next to the old Mecca Bingo building.

The proposed plans will incorporate the entire site and swallow up the old Mecca Bingo building, social services building, Post Office and the site currently used by the market.

tenantspin participant Steve Moss started filming a bit of documentary about the market on the Tuesday before Christmas and plans to continue in the new year interviewing traders from the market and shops along Park Road itself as well as local residents, representitives from the council and Tesco.

We are hoping to have a screening of the film in an event held in Toxteth Town Hall, High Park Street, in February 2008. There will be an opportunity to find out more about the plans, share you views with other residents and representitives from Friends of the Earth and Liverpool University and watch our film about the market and trading in the the Park Road area.

Film Screening Success

Kim Ryan’s Anfield Changing was screened at FACT on Tuesday the 4th of December. The screening was a near sell out and the film was introduced by FACT’s Head of Programming Laura Sillars.

The night was a great success and feedback has been very positive. If you attended the screening and have any comments, please feel free to get in touch. tenantspin would once again like to thank everyone involved in the making of the film.

Also, keep an eye on tenantspin.org for news of further screenings.

Shrinking Cities – Polar Opposites

On November 21st tenantspin hosted a discussion in the Renew Rooms on Wood Street discussing Polarisation. The discussion was in support of the Shrinking Cities Exhibition taking place at SITE Gallery, Albert Dock between November 2007 and January 2008. Chaired by tenantspin’s John McGuirk the conversation touched on topics such as modern city living, industrial development and transient workforces.
