Culture is a vital ingredient in cities, towns and villages alike. It is proven to stimulate local economies and contribute to a shared sense of identity. Culture is the glue which inspires, transforms and brings people together. Provision for culture is a core consideration at the master planning stage as it can also amplify or define the identity of a place and inform its future through cultural interpretation of it history and heritage.
Public Art Strategies sets out a vision and delivery framework for permanent and temporary public art commissioning specifically. This includes defining a curatorial vision and a series of public art projects, defining community and stakeholder involvement, developing a governance framework, project management, project delivery and legacy.
Public art projects and programmes can create opportunities for community dialogue, shared cultural experiences, and civic work. Community focussed creative consultation brings different communities together to inform artists briefs, select artists, solve problems, build relationships, and get involved in ways that rebuild social capital.
We recognize that social and environmental responsibilities are important to the corporate sector. We develop art initiatives that engage community, generate education programmes, address social problems, support young emerging artists and think differently about the role of the corporate art collection.
