36 Lime Street Late Shows 2012

For one night only Theresa Easton spent the evening in the spacious corridor of Level 3 at 36 Lime street printing a series of Political Broadsides.

The evening was busy with visitors choosing their broadsides, literally hot off the press!

The discussion board went down well, with a lively debate ensuing between contributors.

There were some sad and despondent stories from those recently made jobless and those with direct connections to the austerity measure brought in by the government.

I plan to continue the debate and use the suggestions and discussions in a new artist book which i plan to send to the individuals concerned!
