The Expanded City – Emily Speed

During her research for The Expanded City project, artist Emily Speed has explored informal leisure spaces within the City Deal and wider areas of Preston. Through conversations with city planners and on-the-ground research, she has explored approaches to leisure provision within housing developments, the relationship between formal and informal spaces and the interface between public and private space within new housing developments. This research will form the basis of a new artwork, which will be developed in 2017.
