Creating the Scrap Book 2012 (3D)

This is some of the behind the scene pictures of the construction of the 3D Scrap book 2012 art piece we are submitting for The Belper Arts Trail 2012. This will be exhibited in the Library at the end of June.

This is a page in the 3D scrap book that represents the holiday pictures in the original scrap book created when the Library first opened. In the original scrap book about life in Belper there is pictures of people traveling to the coast like Scarborough and Blackpool. These places are represented in the new 3D Scrap book on a time line that ends with a small model of the famous hotel building in Dubai, which you can see under construction here.

The biggest page of the 3D Scrap book was pay tribute to our local heritage and to celebrate the 100th Birthday of the East Mill Building. This is how it looks so far.

Skate Park Edit - Ramp Donation

Our Skate Ramp by thedropinn

We built this Skate Ramp a few years ago but unfortunately couldn't afford the extra insurance costs for the usage as a full ramp.
It was used as a bank for a while then went into storage collecting cobwebs.

The young people attending these skate park meetings own this ramp now, we've donated it to those who will look after it, respect it, and use it.

Make sure you bring plenty of people to carry it off our yard to a new home.

The Skate Park Meetings are every other Tuesday, keep your eye on Facebook for details.

This is the set up for our JamSource tent this year. We've brought most of our Frankenstein Sound System and build a little stage for the Open Mic, we have also set up a desk at the back on the stage for the open deck sessions.

The Front of the stage is all U.V, which lights up with the U.V sound reactive strobe we've installed at the back of the tent.

Cant wait for this to all kick off ...

Belper Arts Trail 2012 - Blurb

This is not a book blurb, but it's an art exhibition featured in a section of Belper Library for the Belper Arts Trail 2012.

Who We Are -
We are an Independent Youth organisation and registered charity (1085617), est 2000.
Our grass roots organisation has grown and evolved through the young volunteers running it, keeping their promise to develop idea's hatched by the young people attending the centre, no matter how outrageous.
"Space for youth run by the youth"
The centre which contains the ever expanding vibe is based on Derwent Street in a converted Warehouse.
We do our best to help our community, create amazing youth opportunities through positive activities, creative multimedia workshops and alternative education.
We are very happy to now be involved in Belper's biggest art event.

Arts Trail Blurb - SCRAP BOOK 2012 (3D)
We didn't know what recontextualisation meant, so we 'googled' it as do most in this day and age.
Being a Youth organisation we wanted to recontextualise one of our old intergenerational projects, called Linking Lives. The Linking Lives project ran for 3 years and aimed to bridge the gap between generations breaking down stereotypes in our community.
We want to recontextualise this whole project outline, while linking our art piece into the 75th Anniversary of Belper Library.
We found an amazing archive and beautiful link to the past in the library. It's a scrap book made to commemorate the opening of Belper Library, the 25th Anniversary of Belper's East Mill, and has a brief history capturing life in 30's.
We are now on an adventure, interviewing people in the community to find representations of Belper in 2012. We will create our own scrap book representing Belper life in 2012, which will be seen in a Real Definition 3D vision (No 3D Glasses Required).
