Introduction to Art Bed and Breakfast
Art Bed and Breakfast will be a traditional Blackpool B&B re-imagined for 21st Century by artists as a space for exhibiting, developing and staging artists’ work while also functioning as a small hotel for paying guests.
I was commissioned by LeftCoast to document the artists first impressions of Art Bed and Breakfast in the form of still photographs and video interviews. As the project is still in development, with artists still to be commissioned, I’ve featured a sneak peek here which will be updated at the appropriate time.
Supported by LeftCoast, Arts Council England, Clore Duffield and Blackpool Council, this experiment aims to develop a sustainable, scalable business model to fund ongoing creative activities for the local community. If successful, there’s every chance of expanding to refurbish more of Blackpool’s 4000 B&Bs.
