Stages of the Project:
We want to capture the community voice and give people the opportunity to express their feelings and creativity. We invite community participants to share their experiences on an A4 piece of paper. It can be a doodle, a poem, a therapeutic painting, whatever captures this moment for you. These moments will come together virtually as an online exhibition platform.
Stories of Covid
We will then collect and curate the pieces, thinking about the flow and design across the panel ensuring all stories have a voice. We can adapt the composition once the location has been identified and we will allow room for input and feedback.
Peace by Piece
(collaboration, creativity, collective, comfort)
We aim to have a flexible approach to the workshops, to ensure all participants have an opportunity to create elements for the panel in a safe and nurturing environment. Workshops include ceramics and mosaics.
We can practice social distancing in community centres, perhaps offer limited households and time slots. We can offer ‘Mosaic in a Box’ which would contain everything a participant needs to complete a mosaic section in isolation. Schools could also take part, which would be smaller groups with our tutors.
growth, wellbeing, healing, cohesion
Everything brought back to our Stockwell studio where our artists will pull the artwork together, fire and glaze ceramics and finish mosaic panels.
Art4Space installation team install the panel. We can document and photograph the piece coming together, shining a light on soul memories, belonging and a cooperative society.
wishes, dreams, desires, respect, serendipity, narrative
We hold a unity event, which could have virtual elements. A time to reflect and admire the collective art piece. Creating a moment of stillness to remember the losses and struggles during Covid19.
Time to Shine
celebration, memory, history, passion projects – galvanising a life changing time
We can tailor our projects to suit your budget, number of participants and timings, and can support any funding applications required. This will become a legacy project for many to enjoy over the coming years.
The Shard - Bar32
Commission to bring unique character to a new tapas bar on the ground floor of The Shard at London Bridge.
The panels are a celebration of London and the history of the local area expressed through symbolism and pattern.
We used a range of materials including marble and found crockery.
Loughborough Park Estate
This mosaic mural celebrates the history of the estate during a period of regeneration and is located in their new playground.
We worked closely with young people and their families on the idea and design. They decided on a colourful, modern and abstract mural.
Strong ceramic pieces add texture and interest to the design.
