The spaces are big and bare. They are raw urban spaces, and there is beauty in that.
They have huge potential.
I have a theory that potential is what we as humans are attracted too. Babies, new romances, a plot of land, a blank canvas, these are things that we humans love, and why? Because when something is unfinished it gives us space to make our mark, to discover, to explore and uncover. It gives us room to matter.
I love these empty spaces of ours. I am thankful that the council and the landlord had the foresight and good judgement to entrust us with them.We will make our mark, even if only for a short while. Those spaces will be different for us being there. They will exist in a different way for the people of the town.
