Learning To Love You More curated by Nicky Peacock
The Co-operative Buildings
In 2008 I got the opportunity to curate a programme of events for local arts organization MAP. After being a fan of LTLYM for a number of years I jumped at the chance to organise a show in Middlesbrough. The interest and support from local people was overwhelming, it was truly a collaborative effort. A local business offered us the use of a gorgeous building and free electricity; others donated materials and printed up assignments for free. Assignments poured in from all over the world and on the opening night of the show a number of local artists performed Assignment #24 Cover the song 'Don't dream it's over' to a super enthusiastic crowd on a late July evening.
