The project was put together by four creative graduates from UCLan – all practising artists who have lived and worked in the area for many years. Steph Fletcher, Benedict Rutherford, Mat Birchall and Jane Bennett formed as a Community Interest Company – the POST POST – earlier in 2014 to help achieve shared aims of providing a supportive, engaging and creative hub in the city centre.
