About the project
Presented by Helen Storey Foundation, University of Leeds and Manchester Metropolitan University, Life on the Outskirts is an AHRC-funded project about finding fresh creativity by revisiting past practice.
Over more than 30 years as a practitioner, Helen Storey has produced innovative, surprising, indispensable, beguiling, beautiful, and arresting creative responses to innumerable briefs and issues across fashion, society, art, and the environment. Her archive stands as case study and inspiration for this project, highlighting a pathway through the creative opportunities that archives can offer.
This website features:
