This blog post is one part of a long overdue progress report. A substantial amount of time has passed since our last update; since the library re-inhabited 79 Chepstow Road, from our temporary home at Holbrook’s, back in June.
Changes have taken place both internally and externally, and over the next few weeks I will be sharing what has been happening.

A few weeks ago, Maindee Unlimited invited applications for a Sound Artist, or Artists, to produce a new art installation for the newly refurbished Maindee Library building, with the commissioned work to be situated and made in response to aspects of the social and cultural ecology of Maindee.
Beyond this remit, the brief was open, and our plans for the outcome equally so.
This blog post will detail the choices and decisions we made to appoint a Sound Artist.
