Here’s the latest on the new 0742 Club in Sheffield which we previously mentioned in this post

The 0742 Club is now open: the semi residential community art/social centre squat adjacent to Debenhams on the Moor is asking for artists, photographers, collectives and political groups to get in contact and to come down and help make the squat as vibrant and active as Possible.

The 0742 Club (a squat adjacent to Debenhams on the Moor) initially squatted by students under the name “The Free Abbey National” and began life as a convergence centre for political protestors in response to the Liberal Democrat Conference is now open as a social centre and community art project.

The Collective invites a broad variety of artists, collectives, and political groups to come and make use of the space (which is huge) as well as opening it’s doors to those wanting to show independant films (A projector is avaliable), hold poetry sessions, or generally hang out. Spaces can be booked or aquired by inpromtue informal discussion with the residents as and when they are needed, and doors will open on monday to the wider public for the display of an art exhibition, a poetry session (to which any poets are invited to take part in), and the provission of hot beverages.

The Collective also puts out a request for Residential Artists and persons who can help to maintain the security of the space (this does not have to mean every night and day, but it would also be useful to have volunteers willing to stay a night or two).

The 0742 can be contact via its SQAUTLINE on 07806414837 or via the contact number that has already been given out in other articles written in reference to the Centre.

NICE ONE!

The 0742 Club is a new social centre in a squatted bank on The Moor, Sheffield. They’re planning art events, music nights, film screenings, info stalls, talks, workshops and much more. This will also provide a much needed space for the anti-cuts movement in Sheffield.

They’re in urgent need of residents! So if you’re in Sheff pop on down to the Moor and offer your support.

0742 is the old area code for Sheffield. It was also the name our dearly departed mate Mozaz used on his Urban Exploration posts. We can think of no more fitting MO-morial; Mark would have loved it – though he’d probably have banned the middle class from the place 😉
