What is PROJECT?

PROJECT - engaging artists in the built environment is a new national funding scheme jointly supported by the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) and Arts & Business (A&B). It will involve the arts, culture, design, education, environment, healthcare, housing, and regeneration sectors in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Public Art South West will manage and deliver the scheme which was launched on 8 June 2004 and will run until March 2006.

PROJECT aims to create a shared vision for public space, planning and high quality urban design; and engage artists, public agencies and the private sector in projects that will have a positive impact on the places in which we live.

CABE logo and web site linkThis funding partnership between CABE and A&B has secured a new award scheme for the arts. We want people undertaking any built environment project to ask: what is the added value of involving an artist and to look at the contributions of artists to the built environment as a whole.
Chris Murray, Director of Learning and Development, CABE

This scheme aims to promote the role that artists can play in sharing creative ideas within multidisciplinary practice. Through changing the way we think and work with architecture, building and design professionals, we aim to create imaginative environments that are fit for purpose, and that reflect local identity and meet communities' needs.
Maggie Bolt, Director, PASW
