Granby 4 Streets ‘Office of Useful Art’ Open for Business

On a rainy Saturday 3 September, Michael Simon (Granby 4 Streets Community Land Trust member and Social Activist) threw open the doors on the new Granby 4 Streets Office of Useful Art. The plan for this exciting project is simple – to be the first truly ground-up, constituency led ‘Office of Useful Art’ which will use the existing Association of Arte Útil archive – amongst other available resources- to both partake in, and contribute to, the next steps of the Association of Arte Útil. As well as this, the Granby Office of Useful Art also marks an opportunity for LJMU to work closely with constituents from the Granby area as a means to use art as a vehicle for collaboratively producing, and re-thinking, forms of ground up education and access.
