Vane is collaborating with Crisis, the national charity for single homeless people, on the project ‘Our Town’. Members of Crisis are creating a series of model buildings in a variety of materials ranging from cardboard and papier maché to wood and ceramic. The buildings vary from houses to hospitals, from the utilitarian to the fantastical. These will be assembled in the gallery to create a model town exploring ideas of community, social history, architecture and personal aspirations.
