Present Tense, Future Perfect?

This month, we received 84 applications towards our residency Present Tense, Future Perfect? It was a mammoth task to choose only two artists to be in residence with us over the next month but we are happy to announce who they are! Joining us as artists in residency for the Present Tense, Future Perfect? Residency is Thomas Wynne and Kelly O'Brien, both Derby-based artists. Here is little more about them.

August was a fun filled month with Creativity and Noise at Artcore

In August we had our first event back at Charnwood Street since reopening as we launched our new project 'In Our Thoughts.' This was a wonderful opportunity to meet new volunteers as well as introduce the project through Zoom to local coordinators. Staff and volunteers have also been back in the office, it's been lovely to actually see people in person, although it has been enjoyable to see everyones houses and their pets through zoom.

EMA Flying High With HSG

East Midlands Airport has further improved its environmental credentials by adopting an innovative water conservation system at the Castle Donington passenger terminal.

EMA is the latest company to team up with Derby-based washroom water conservation specialists HSG and install the Ureco system which reduces water consumption, saves money on utility bills and improves the washroom experience for passengers departing and arriving at the airport.

HSG’s technical team took advantage of lockdown to install the system across the site.
