I am writing to let you know about our public art project. This project aims to locate, record and photograph public art, namely artwork made by an artist, arts practitioner or craftsperson and located in publicly accessible spaces and places in Wiltshire. Data collected as part of the project will be made available in the Local Studies Library at the Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre with images deposited in the Historic Photograph and Print Collection. The images will then be pinned to the Know Your Place site http://www.kypwest.org.uk to map their location geographically. More details can be found at this link: https://creativewiltshire.com/
and on the attached flyer.
Creative Wiltshire are running a series of workshops across the county for those interested in getting involved in the project; to help prepare, organise and collate material. Volunteers are encouraged to register their interest to help support public art in the places that matter to them.
I’ve attached details of the first workshop to be held in Calne Library on Tuesday 11 July 2017 at 6pm to 7pm. This is followed by a workshop at Marlborough Library on Thursday 20 July 2017, 6-7pm. Other dates are in the process of being arranged in other locations across the county. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more details on these events.
We’d very much appreciate it if you could forward this to your networks, club members or to anyone you think might be interested in helping us with this project. Please also feel free to include this information in any newsletters or distributions/circulations you might have.
