The Centre of New Enlightenment at The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

"The Centre for New Enlightenment (TCoNE), was created to complement the aims of the restoration project to improve the emotional intellectual, aesthetic and physical access to the collections.
...
The objective of The Centre of New Enlightenment (TCoNE) is to improve young visitors' confidence and help them find the hero inside themselves – to believe that they are not victims of circumstance, but architects of their own futures.
...
The project was developed between 2004 and late 2007. During the pilot period in spring 2008 over two–thousand visitors were invited, with the Centre of New Enlightenment programme officially going live on Friday 19th Sep 2008. TCoNE is now fully open for school groups and visitors during school holidays. The Victorian ideal of the museum was one which transformed the lives of people, especially young people, through exposure to art, history and science The challenge to Kelvingrove was to create, in an empirically verifiable way, a programme which could realise this ideal, in the few hours of engagement involved in one or two visits together with incentives for subsequent self–led development.

The programme has two parts: firstly the museum experience comprising opening show; the tour and the end show; and secondly the TCoNE Community: further resources comprising mostly digital educational and support materials including an interactive CD ROM, and membership of an exclusive on–line community for all participants. A dedicated team of five museum professionals deliver the operation and development."

KiosKiosK: free retail space for new creative businesses

"Designers Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway MBE have today called for budding creative entrepreneurs to come forward to sell their products from 'KiosKiosK' – an innovative 'pop up shop' that will provide free temporary retail space for start–up businesses in central London this summer.

The first KiosKiosK – designed by the Hemingways and supported by the Mayor of London and the London Sustainable Development Commission's London Leaders programme – will be housed for two months (July to September 2009) outside London's iconic City Hall. It will offer rent–free space for people with creative products to sell such as ceramics, artworks, creative gifts and fashion, helping new businesses with great ideas to get a stepup on the ladder to success.

It is hoped that low cost 'pop up' shops of this kind will provide a template for London and towns and cities across the UK by offering a helping hand for businesses that may be priced out of high cost, high street and prime retail locations. This will also help to support smaller, independent shops increasing consumer choices.

The Hemingways started the famous Red or Dead brand from low cost 'easy in, easy out' starter units at Camden and Kensington Markets and Affleck's Palace in Manchester, but believe it has now become increasingly difficult for start up creative businesses to find affordable retail space."
