The results of a community design session on Wednesday will be unveiled at Sneinton Festival on Saturday 30th July...

Nottingham Trent University held a session for people to help design a piece of "community furniture" for Sneinton, as part of the Mapping Nottingham's Identity project.

Students from NTU's School of Architecture and the Built environment had worked with staff to interview local groups and work out some ideas for a small piece of modular 'furniture'. The idea is that the pieces will be stored by the groups and brought to local events to join together and make stages, seating and tables. A design guide will also be prepared so that people can make their own at home from recycled palette wood.

12 pallets were donated by 2J's supermarket - these are being reclaimed and assembled at the NTU workshop. A number of prototypes will be on show for the public to test out at the Sneinton Festival - find us at the Sneinton Alchemy and Sneinton Identity stalls!
