Following a Festival of Science and Curiosity workshop this February with the award-winning Long Live Southbank, where young skateboarders were encouraged to imagine how ‘unloved’ spaces around Nottingham could be made lively, safe and engaging through small design installations, the Creative Quarter have been working with Nottingham’s skate community on a project in the under-used space at the foot of Maid Marian Way.
