Fashioning a City

Spinney Hills

Spinney Hill is located to the north of Highfields in the inner city. Within the area is Spinney Hill Park, which, along with the surrounding buildings, was designated as a conservation area in 1982 to protect the distinctive characteristics of the area.

We worked with young people aged 14-25 living in the Spinny Hill area that took part in a free Summer performance project that ran form Mon 23 Jul – Mon 30 Jul.

Sessions for the Spinney Hill group took place at the Highfields Adventure Playground Association in Spinney Hill Park with Hip Hop artist Si Rawlinson and heritage expert Tara Monroe – who used the playground regularly as a child.
