News, happenings and goings on from the Old Fire Station, Oxford

Public Art

How do you make a fantastic permanent art work to sit in the new building which will intrigue and inspire for years to come in collaboration with a group of homeless people?  How do you make sure that the participants are genuinely involved throughout?  What will it be about?  What will it be made of?  How will it be installed?  We’ve had some fantastic proposals and have decided to appoint Emma Reynard and Rachel Barberesi.  They will now be working with Lucy Phillips to meet with homeless people and form a group to make it happen.  Their work will be unveiled when we open in the autumn.  I have no idea what it will be but I know it’s going to be good.
