Hollygirt School - Carrington Street Project


A group of super-able children has been selected to be part of a niche team comprised of Hollygirt’s most able students to work with Nottingham City Council and the Urban Room Partnership on the Carrington Street Townscape Heritage programme, which aims to link the railways station with future improvements around the Broadmarsh area.

The group of students form Hollygirt School will work on a project with external lead professionals to bring together technology and creativity by looking at the past, present and future of the street. Students will survey the facades of Carrington Street, photograph them and analyse them, and they will look at the history of the place to find inspiration for a series of outcomes:

1. A musical piece that they will compose based on the architectural features of the facades.
2. A literacy piece in the form of a poem or prose.
3. A design for a building that follows the ‘Carrington St’ trend and that fits in with the context. Students will draw this in a 3D modelling software and possibly, they will produce a 3D printing of their design.
4. A piece of art (image or sculpture).
5. Videography of the project.

Students will showcase the outcomes of their project at the Urban Room in a dedicated event.

A video of the project itself will be on display at the Urban Room during the event and this will be uploaded on the UR website as a permanent feature.
