Townsend Lane Health Centre is open!

tenantspin have been working in partnership with FACT’s Healthy Spaces programme, ABCC, B2U residents association, Anfield Childrens centre and residents across the neighbourhood on a new artwork.

The artwork is inside Townsend Lane Health Centre, a new neighbourhood health centre built on the site of the former All Saints School and more historically a mansion called Mulberry House.

It is the work of artists Alastair Eilbeck and James Bailey and is full of 75 portraits of local people waiting at bus-stops – a reflection on waiting in a Health Centre.

Over 6 weeks, tenantspin worked with B2U residents association, Anfield, Breckside Community Council, Richmond Fellowship and even artist Jeremy Bailey to collect images of the local area in photo tours run by artist Washington Buckley and collecting archive images and memories for the artwork which responds to movement in the centre and contains a directional speaker in which you can hear the memories – some of which were donated by tenantspin’s Laura’s uncle!

To hear the memories visit here and to see the pictures gathered by the photo groups visit here
