Since 2003 Encounters have been taking up residence in disused Shops across the UK, working with thousands of people to create evolving, co-authored artworks about the joys and challenges of everyday life.
Shops have taken place in Sheffield, Winchester, Liverpool, Batley, Totnes and London. We also deliver Mobile Shop projects that tour and connect different locations within a neighbourhood.
Encounters Shops become meeting places in which local communities can collect and exchange experiences, memories, objects, journeys and thoughts about their lives, where they live and the wider world.
