    PROVIDE shopThis project was set out to highligh the key concepts of PROVIDE, an independent shop local to Birmingham. Trying to understand if the nostalgia and the connection people had with local shops in the past and if they still yearn for a more intimate shopping experience. And are those experiences captured by PROVIDE. All inter-linked with the conversations and interactions had at the shop, it prompted the search for the same types of interactions and conversations in Birmingham.
