Based in Staffordshire, restoke combine dance, music and visual art to produce works that breathe new life into forgotten spaces.
RE:STOKE’s aims are to:
- create high quality artwork and performance in the public realm.
- integrate the arts into regeneration by working in partnership with local authorities.
- empower communities through engaging in high quality arts activities.
We visited the Spode works to hear from Re:Stoke about the Reclaim project and try our hands at pottery decorating. In a time where the demise of a thriving industry brought about catastrophic change, a roving community find sanctuary in an abandoned pottery factory. Amidst relics of a creative past, rediscovered treasures take on new meaning as the resourceful inhabitants reclaim the space around them.
