Public Art Statement for University of Bristol Temple Quarter Campus
Field Art Projects were appointed in spring 2012 to develop and deliver a public art strategy and programme for the University of Bristol’s residential site at Stoke Bishop, north Bristol. The project culminates with the launch of Sarah Staton’s new work Edith & Hans this week.
Field Art Projects are advising the Design Team for the new Bristol Arena on their art strategy and the art programme being delivered alongside the building.
Jes Fernie and Theresa Bergne, Field Art Projects, co-curated Future Perfect, a public art programme for the Hengrove Ward, a residential area in south Bristol, built primarily in the post-war era.
DIY Arts is a peer to peer network for people in Bristol who work in the cultural sector to share thinking, advocate our needs to funders and policy makers and support each other.
DIY is formed of working groups where knowledge is shared and shaped. The groups focus on different areas of the sector, from advocating for work and making space for artists, to international working and networks.
We gather together for two group meetings a year, for networking, updates on working groups and to look at how we can do more collectively than on our own by joining up activity and to address any urgent needs for advocacy and there is an annual DIY summer gathering to celebrate the cultural sector.
A committee exists to ensure the network functions as efficiently as it can and to interface with Bristol City Council and its cultural strategy and the wider WECA (West of England Combined Authority) Cultural Strategy.
The committee is made up of volunteers including representatives from each working group. Theresa Bergne of Field Art Projects is a member, and if you’d like further information please contact her.
