LOST NOTTINGHAM

A WORD AND IMAGE PROJECT BY SHAUN BELCHER

I intend to produce a series of poems and illustrations in the manner of Julia Wetz’s Tenements, Towers and Trash project in New York.

I also inspired by SETH’s glorious work.

The original mechanics cinema now near what now the YMCA building. Corner of Burton Street.

Each illustration will be accompanied by a poem on the building depicted. I may make ten such images if lucky by April 21st-28th when Jermy & Westerman bookshop have kindly said I can display the works with a special opening view on Saturday 21st pm and maybe a reading with other poets on the final Saturday of the festival the 28th depending on NPF timetable clashes etc.

The project is the beginning of a bigger ‘Lost Nottingham’ project that might open up to involve other artists and poets if funding can be found as I do not have the resources or enough years left to cover all of Nottingham.
