Project Description

Central Bedfordshire is a housing growth area and there are substantial opportunities to incorporate and integrate public art initiatives within new developments. ArtReach has been contracted by Central Bedfordshire Council to provide consultancy support to assist with all public art initiatives, involving – identifying opportunities for public art; developing artist briefs; liaising with developers; responding to Section 106 public art requirements; recruiting artists; preparing contracts; and project management support.

To date ArtReach has supported project development in Ampthill Park, Silsoe, Stotford, and as part of the new Woodside Link development. The work will continue through 2014 and 2015.
