Homeless Art

Oxford City Council have given us money to commission an artist to work with homeless people and make something brilliant as a permanent feature for the new bulilding.  We met to discuss it today for the first time.  Lucy Phillips is going to project manage it.  Some of you may know her as administrator at OVADA.  A brief will be going out next week inviting artists to put in a proposal.  We’ll then be recruiting people who are homeless and would like to be part of making it.  Where it goes depends on what it is but it may be a huge thing on the tower or a small thing on a wall or even a piece of furniture.  Its great starting something which could go anywhere.  It’s also good to know that we’ll be giving a permanent home to a piece of art.
