About Cathy Newbery Limited

Cathy Newbery Limited was founded in 2007 to expand the work of the director Cathy Newbery.

Cathy has a proven track record in the delivery of high quality public art, including extensive knowledge and practical experience of public art commissioning, project delivery, strategic work and public sector partnership. With over ten years experience of working on a variety of public art schemes, predominately in the North West, we work in a collaborative way with artists, architects and other design professionals and has successfully advocated for the inclusion of artists in design teams and the strategic role of culture as part of the regeneration agenda.

Each scheme approach is based on detailed research into the place and its users. Our aim is to establish how the place works, understand its dynamics and determine how these affect residents and visitors and then propose ways in which art and artists can bring benefits.

Cathy Newbery, the Director is a Board member of ixia the think tank, the national agency for the development and promotion of public art practice. Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
