The Expanded City is an art project being run by In Certain Places and it is meeting to give an update.

More than £430million is being spent in the Preston and South Ribble City Deal and this includes a huge number of new homes being built – mainly in the North West of Preston around Cottam, Lea and Fulwood.

A number of artists have been commissioned in a three year study to look at how the City Deal is affecting Preston.

On Friday (18 November) there’s an informal look at how the project has progressed and pick up a free publication which explains the first 12 months of the project.

Olivia Keith, Gavin Renshaw, Ian Nesbitt, Ruth Levene, Emily Speed and Lauren Velvick have been examining the characteristics of places involved in the City Deal.

The event is free to attend and is at Ham and Jam cafe in Lancaster Road from 12noon to 3pm.
