Mapping: Collaborations, Networks and Partnerships
Figure Ground (that's me, Katy Beinart and Jack Brown) have been delivering a series of training sessions for artists currently working in the public realm or looking to get involved in public art, in Medway. The sessions are part of the In-sites project commissioned by Medway Council Arts team and co-ordinated by FrancisKnight. The sessions aim to build artists skills and professional practice in order to make them better able to apply for commissions and funding. We've met some excellent artists and been introduced to exciting work and projects that (fingers crossed!) will start next year.
There will be a Creative Seminar exploring Regeneration and the Role of Public Art on Thursday 9th July 2015 at Chatham Hictoric Dockyard bringing together all the artists on the Rochester Riverside project and participants in the training programme.
