Workington Town Centre Public Realm

Allerdale Borough Council and Workington Regeneration commissioned a series of new urban spaces and public art as part of the redevelopment of Workington town centre. This was made possible by £2.74m of investment from the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA). The art projects complement Workington’s new retail development designed by CDA architects for S. Harrison Developments of Malton. The Arts Council awarded an additional £30,000 to support a temporary programme of public art events and projects.

As an associate of Working pArts, Cathy developed and implemented the temporary programme and led on The Lookout Clock and The Water Cycle as well as supporting the permanent programme, to ensure design quality and engage local people with the changing landscape of the town. The development has recently won construction and retail centre regional awards.

Cathy curated and project managed.
