    Translating the street is a research and development pilot project funded by Arts Council England and initiated, commissioned and curated by Brigitte Jurack. It seeks to create micro-residencies for international artists to work with local independent and often multi-cultural businesses in Birkenhead, Merseyside in an area of high levels of social deprivation and low art participation. Artists’ speaking the native language of the shop-owners and the communities they serve are invited to collaborate on new artworks that translate the hitherto hidden stories. The first round of residencies were undertaken by Haleh Jamali (Iran-Scotland), Harold Offeh (Ghana-UK) and Jeff Young (Liverpool).
