Art on the High Street

Art on the High Street  started as a collaboration between two artists, Me and Amy Lee Briggs. Our first project was to take contemporary studio practice onto the high street, in an empty space ‘Fish Bowl Studio’

We then coordinated ‘Rats on the Move’ a social media driven, self funded project to raise awareness of and connect artists (and others) across the country and enable them to participate in a large public art project using some Fluoro leather given to us by the Cambridge Satchel Company during our empty shop residency. Our rats travelled far and wide from Marrakesh and India to the Turner Contemporary! Here they all are

And then came ‘Craft Army’ a craftivist social media project to increase arts engagement and motivate others to be proactive about things in their communities they would like to change.

‘Gallery Alley’ was a project designed to highlight overlooked places in town centre, showing their potential and creating a miniature gallery accessible to all.

Our latest Art on the High Street project was Newark Pop Up Shop & Outside Gallery’   commissioned & funded by Nottinghamshire County Council and match funded by Newark & Sherwood District Council.  We were asked to connect local artists & deliver networking events, deliver participatory workshops with schools, artists and the local community and hold an outside gallery event.
