Case Study: Spaces
Working with Cheshire County Council, a series of approaches were developed to raise the profile of Public Art across the departments.
The advocacy tool is Spaces www.spacescheshire.com. Spaces is an exciting new initiative aimed at engaging artists, commissioners and the wider community in the debate about site specific visual arts in Cheshire.
Features case studies of exemplar projects in Cheshire, including Tatton Park Biennial and Station/Stationary
Take part in debates about commissions commissioning
Information about recent projects in Cheshire, such as Torifune Butoh at Tatton Park and Something Beautiful commissions.
We intend for the website to grow over time; to become part of the commissioning process by exhibiting virtual proposals for commissions in Cheshire.
Spaces, in partnership with Parabola, presented a one-day symposium for artists, commissioners and arts organisations exploring commissioning, context and site specific art. Using the first Tatton Park Biennial as one type of commissioning we intended to explore the full range of approaches.
