Creative Communities

We work with communities and special interest groups to broker bespoke partnerships that lead to meaningful cultural programming.

Creative Communities

Our cultural 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, generate content for artworks, build relationships, and get involved in ways that rebuild social capital.

Ryan Gander

Elephant Park | Ryan Gander

A community-conceived artwork led by Ryan Gander OBE has been commissioned for Elephant Park in South London. Ryan Gander began the commission by working with the South London Gallery on a series of workshops for local school children that brought together the children's playfulness and imagination to co-create the form of the final artwork. This final work will have several elements at different locations, forming a trail around the park - a new two-acre green space - for existing and future communities, and visitors to the area, to discover and enjoy.

North West Cambridge | InSite Arts

*Consultancy worked with InSite Arts to produce the public art strategy for Cambridge University’s North West Cambridge development. The strategy prefaces integrated approaches to working with artists and a sustainable programme of commissioning, both permanent and temporary, through a 15-year-long development programme. An internationally networked Artist Residency Programme is the heart of the strategy, ensuring that a unique understanding of place is central to the programme.

Herne Hill

Flying Boots and Eyes on Fire | Caroline McCarthy

Following flooding of a key retail area of Herne Hill, South London in 2013, footfall to the area had declined leading to a challenging trading environment for local retailers. In 2017 *Consultancy were appointed to commission a landmark artwork with the aim of creating an exciting focal point for the high street. We worked with Southwark Council, the Herne Hill Forum, flood-affected traders and business owners to define the artist brief and shortlist artists who would undertake a meaningful rethinking of place and local identity through the lens of contemporary art.
