Artspace would like to apologise to Visualising the City / City Arcadia followers and participants who have missed seeing regular news and updates from the project. BUT! After a month of review and re-evaluation, we are delighted to announce that we are back in business. We are really excited to be working with four artists on the development and presentation of their commissions this summer – Lauren Heywood and Rob Hamp from Coventry, Amelia Crouch from Leeds and Spencer Graham from Northamptonshire. Check out their information and pages on this site to find out more about their projects. We are also planning a surprise treat for the summer holidays…more on that later!
In addition to the commissions we are working with a exciting group of artists, some home grown in Coventry to complete the research and development phase of seven projects that will provide the basis for a future programme of work for Coventry.
Michael Mayhew completed his contract and left Artspace at the end of January, while Laura Elliot left us to take up maternity leave in November 2015. We would like to thank Michael and Laura for all their hard work and inspirational ideas on the City Arcadia project. Artspace Interim Director Mindy Chillery is overseeing the delivery of the final phase of the work with the support of Artspace Trustee Nicola Richardson of Vortex Creates.
Much more news to come ….watch this space…
