Video: Castle Arcade empty shop gets used

There’s a fair few empty shops in Cardiff’s Victorian Arcades, a shame as they should be a bustling hive of independent stores and small chains.

The clever people over at thinkARK decided to take over one of the empty retail units to do something creative. Brilliant. For three days the shop space was transformed into an arty hub, with workshops, plays, films and some bonkers thing where people brought along their old shit and it was transformed into something useful.

A short video has been produced about the weekend, with a few talking heads giving their feedback. Have a watch and let’s hope they do this all over again.
