Talks about art and placemaking


< Worcester: the art of making a modern city ”¢ 14 December 2010, 1-1.50pm (please arrive at 1pm prompt) ”¢ £2 / £1 for students & artists (available on the door, in cash) ”¢ Venue: The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ A connected approach to art in the public realm can now, arguably, spearhead the emergence of Worcester as a modern, sustainable university city. Julia Ellis (Project Associate at architecture centre MADE) with Emma Larkinson (MADE Expert Panel Member and Public Art Consultant) will discuss how Worcester City Council is transforming its approach to art in the public realm. The context for this is a new city centre masterplan, Worcester University's new campus and arts strategy, Fielden Clegg Bradley's inspirational new library and visitor centre and two important site-specific artworks recently commissioned by Sustrans and The Crown Estate. Julia and Emma will discuss challenges and opportunities — from visioning to delivering excellence in architecture, urban design and public art — in the context of Worcester's important heritage and historic identity. < Art in the Open ”¢ 26 January 2011, 6.30-8pm ”¢ £5 / £4 for students & artists (includes a glass of wine) - available on the door, in cash ”¢ Venue: The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ Increasingly, artists are working with architects, masterplanners and regeneration experts to create better public spaces all over London, as well as nationally and internationally. Join a stimulating talk with artist Jacqueline Poncelet and Jes Fernie (Art in the Open Associate, Open-City) to hear more about art in the public realm in London, the contribution of artists to our public spaces, and current and future artistic practice. Open-City's Art in the Open is London's advisor for art in the public realm. It supports those making and commissioning work for the capital, advocating a more inspirational public realm, and advising on how exemplary art in the public realm can enrich the experience of London significantly. < Continue the debate online Let us know what you think about the relationship between art in the public realm and placemaking. Email your thoughts, and we'll post them on the Debate & Innovate page.
